Supervisor Sheila Kuehl LA County Homeless Initiative Update
February 26, 2019
Since passing the Affordable Housing Programs Budget Unit in 2015 and committing Mental Health Services Act funding for supportive housing beginning in 2017, the County has dramatically increased its investment in affordable and supportive homes.
I'm thrilled that we continued to build on that progress and passed a series of motions to approve the first of 1,600 new affordable housing units that will be funded this year.
These homes will be built all across the County from Palmdale to West Hollywood and from Pomona to Torrance -- and will continue to increase our investment in affordable and supportive housing in the coming fiscal year.
That and much more from our meeting, including the creation of an Office of Violence Prevention, preserving affordable rents and "Hope for the Coast" in this week's Board of Supes' Take 5.
