CalHOPE delivers crisis support for communities impacted by a national disaster. This is a Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and run by the California Department of Health Care Services. In 2020, Humboldt received a $100,000 CalHOPE grant. The grant program was expanded in 2021 so that all 58 county offices of education received funding. Humboldt will receive $400,000 from 2022 through 2024.

The CalHOPE Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Community of Practice is helping enable California's schools to be leaders in supporting proactive and early intervention as we collectively respond to the social, emotional, and mental health needs of students, families, and educators. Through a unique partnership with California Department of Health Services, Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE), Orange County Department of Education (OCDE), University of California, Berkeley, and FEMA, California front-line educators are preparing to do the unprecedented task of bringing children back into learning after widespread trauma and isolation.
