With its 24th Quarterly Report, the Homeless Initiative is marking five full years since the implementation of Measure H, the landmark ¼-cent sales tax approved by 70% of Los Angeles County voters in March 2017.
This report captures cumulative data from July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2022, five years during which the County has been leveraging Measure H to implement strategies on homeless prevention, outreach, interim housing, permanent housing, and supportive services.
The report also tracks data from July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022, representing the entire fiscal year (FY) 2021-22.
Since Measure H revenue began funding Homeless Initiative strategies, the County’s homeless services system has provided permanent housing to 84,170 people and interim housing to 114,212 people. These include 33,426 permanent housing placements and 60,201 interim housing placements through programs funded completely or partially with Measure H.
In FY 2021-2022, the system moved 15,733 people into permanent housing and provided interim housing to 29,180 people. This includes 4,320 permanent housing placements and 9,781 interim housing placements through Measure H-funded programs.
