LAHSA Survey on Proposed Plan to Allocate New State Funding
Dear Community Partner,
The State of California will be making a $500 million one-time allocation to address homelessness, with funding flowing to cities and Continuums of Care across the state later this fall. The Los Angeles Continuum of Care (LA CoC) expects to receive approximately $80 million in new funding to expand and enhance our work to combat homelessness.
The LA CoC is seeking input from service and housing providers, persons with lived experience of homelessness, and other partners on a draft expenditure plan
for this new one-time state funding. In addition to community meetings
throughout the LA CoC, LAHSA is seeking input on the proposed plan through an online survey.
LAHSA is grateful for your time and input on the draft expenditure plan as we continue to refine our shared vision for ending homelessness. The survey
will remain open until COB on August 30th. Please feel free to forward this link to other concerned stakeholders and encourage them to share their input. We will release a memo summarizing the input from the public meetings around the LA CoC as well as the survey results in early September. The final expenditure plan will be submitted to the LAHSA Commission for final approval at the end of September.
