Oceanside officials cleared a major hurdle in efforts to open a temporary shelter for homeless families with state approval Monday of a $200,000 federal grant. The grant is the most that the city can receive from a pool of $1.3 million for cities with populations under 200,000, said Richard Goodman, Oceanside's housing chief. The grant will allow the city to either lease or purchase 15 portable trailers on a leased 3-acre site near the San Luis Rey Mission. The city signed a three-year lease with the property's owner, Sisters of the Precious Blood, for one dollar a year, Goodman said.
