Fiscal Year 2024-25 Homeless Initiative Funding Recommendations Process
Los Angeles County is currently drafting its funding recommendations for addressing and preventing homelessness for fiscal year 2024-25, which begins July 1, 2024.
This investment will continue to build on the County’s work over the last several years to expand, enhance and expedite efforts to help people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. It will also bolster the County’s urgent response to the local emergency on homelessness declared by the Board of Supervisors on January 10, 2023, with a focus on four missions:
- Encampment Resolution
- Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Services
- Eviction Prevention
A significant portion of the funding is from Measure H, a 1/4 -cent sales tax over ten years that nearly 70 percent of County voters approved in March 2017, creating the first revenue stream dedicated to addressing and preventing homelessness countywide. Combining Measure H funds with other funding, and adhering to its new framework to end homelessness, the County has been working to increase the scale and impact of its efforts to provide:
- Outreach to people living on the streets;
- Interim Housing, such as shelter and recuperative care beds;
- Permanent Housing, such as subsidized apartments, and
- Links to Supportive Services, such as physical and mental health care, substance use disorder treatment, benefits enrollment, employment services, and life skills development.
