FY 2022-23 BUDGET
As Los Angeles County prepares to intensify and refocus its efforts to fight homelessness, the Board of Supervisors approved a $536.2-million spending plan that significantly expands permanent and interim housing solutions and increases funding for local cities in fiscal year 2022-23.
About 87 percent of the spending plan, $466.75 million, will come from Measure H, a 1/4-cent sales tax approved by County voters in 2017, specifically to address and prevent homelessness. The remaining $65.86 million represents state funding.
The Homeless Initiative spending plan is a significant portion of the County’s overall spending to address homelessness, which exceeded $1 billion in fiscal year 2021-22.
