Implementing Measure H
Measure H represents a key component of the County’s Homeless Initiative, an unprecedented collaboration that last year pinpointed 47 strategies to reduce and prevent homelessness. The widely-praised effort involved more than 100 community organizations, 30 cities and an array of County departments and experts.
Already, through well-targeted spending, the numbers of families and veterans on our streets has dropped significantly. Shelter residents are being given access to permanent housing, services and employment at ever higher levels. Hundreds of individuals are being rapidly rehoused and are on a path to paying their own rent. New County health teams are in the field bringing health and housing to hundreds more.

Revenue Planning Process Meetings
As directed by the Board, on March 23, the Chief Executive Office launched an inclusive planning process to develop specific funding recommendations for consideration by the Board of Supervisors in June 2017. There will be a total of four planning meetings, all of which are open to the public. The Measure H Revenue Planning Workgroup consists of 50 participants from key County Departments, cities representing Councils of Governments, homeless service providers and local policy experts, faith-based agencies, Home for Good, and people who experienced homelessness. Following the 3rd meeting, public comment will be solicited on a set of draft funding recommendations, through a meeting with the Lived Experience Advisory Group, a community web meeting, and submitted online. All meetings will be held at United Way 1150 S. Olive Street, 30th Floor, LA, CA 90012. Agendas and documents for the revenue planning meetings can be accessed through the links below.
