Measure H-Funded Contracts

Measure H funds 21 Homeless Initiative strategies; wherever reasonable, the funding is allocated regionally to each Service Planning Area based on need. For strategies where funding is allocated by SPA, in FY 2017-18, the allocation was determined based on each SPA’s percentage of the 2017 homeless count. Commencing FY 2018-19, funding allocated by SPA is based on the homeless count for the preceding two years and, in some instances, the County’s homeless population estimate based on County administrative data.

Measure H funds for each strategy are administered by one or more lead County agencies (such as LAHSA or the Department of Health Services), who in turn generally contract with community-based organizations to provide services/rental subsidies, as identified in the following document. The funding breakdown in the attached document is for FY 2017-18, and only reflects the funding contracted to community-based organizations, not the total amount allocated for each strategy.

Additionally, funding for the following strategies is utilized countywide, but is not allocated by SPA: (funding amounts are for FY 2017-18)

  • Strategy B7 – Interim/Bridge Housing for those Exiting Institutions – $13,000,000
  • Strategy C7 – Subsidized Employment for Homeless Adults – $5,000,000
  • Strategy D7 – Provide Services and Rental Subsidies for Permanent Supportive Housing – $25,100,000
