Overview

The City of Los Angeles is out to end homelessness. With an estimated 28,000 people living on LA streets and 47,000 County-wide, encampments have become a familiar part of the urban fabric. Recently, LA voters approved HHH, a $1.2 billion bond measure with a self-imposed property tax assessment of $9.64 for each $100,000 of property valuation. The measure will help build 1,000 housing units for homeless people annually over a 10-year period along with County support services geared toward re-entry into a healthier lifestyle. The 5-year implementation period includes units built on city-owned property. Join our panel discussion on the leadership ingredients for this important initiative, development and design challenges, and its possible application for other cities.
