The Board of Supervisors on February 6, 2024, unanimously approved a $783 million spending plan for the Los Angeles County Homeless Initiative (CEO-HI) in fiscal year 2024-25 that sustains and expands the County’s existing homeless services system and ramps up the homelessness emergency response while investing in critical programs.

The plan includes $662.3 million for homelessness prevention, outreach, interim housing, permanent housing, and supportive services – all essential elements of the homeless services system – plus an additional $120.7 million to support Pathway Home and other critical projects necessary to scale up and fast-track the County’s homelessness emergency response. This spending plan will be funded with $587.2 million in anticipated voter-approved tax revenue; $140 million in additional County funds, and $54.8 million in State Homeless Housing, Assistance and Prevention (HHAP) grant dollars.

Pathway Home leverages emergency powers and partnerships with local jurisdictions to bring people out of encampments and into immediately available interim housing accompanied by a comprehensive suite of supportive services and, ultimately, into safe, permanent homes. The spending plan also earmarks funding for critical projects, such as the Skid Row Action Plan, and specialized outreach to address recreational vehicle (RV) encampments and those in high fire severity zones in unincorporated communities. This amount also includes opiate treatment, harm reduction, and other efforts to reduce the mortality rate among people experiencing homelessness.
