Measure H is the landmark ¼-cent sales tax approved by 69.34% of Los Angeles County voters in March 2017, the first revenue stream dedicated to preventing and addressing homelessness countywide.
It is projected to raise $355 million annually for 10 years, or a total of $3.5 billion, to implement the County’s Homeless Initiative strategies. It is set expire in 2027, unless renewed by voters.
A Citizen’s Oversight Advisory Board reviews Measure H spending. Independent audits and performance evaluations also help ensure transparency and accountability.
