HUD To Award $188 Million To Address Homelessness In Los Angeles
HUD has awarded $188 in funds to tackle homelessness in Los Angeles and to support housing projects.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded $188 Million for new projects to the Los Angeles Continuum of Care (CoC). This amount indicates that HUD’s allocation to the LA CoC in FY 2022 has an increase of $24.56 Million. This increase has come along with an adjustment for fair market rent for existing programs and new programs.
LAHSA will receive $10.26 Million in new funding for two new permanent supportive housing projects and this is included in the $188 Million. LA’s area inventory will witness an addition of 435 units of permanent supportive housing.
Chief Executive Officer of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority Dr. Va Lecia Kellum Adams said, “We are grateful to HUD and the Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs for renewing and expanding assistance for our rehousing programs. We look forward to bringing more people inside through supportive housing and increasing our efforts to help more domestic violence survivors find a home as a result of this funding. LAHSA will continue to work with HUD to bring necessary resources to Los Angeles that will address the humanitarian crisis on our streets.”
The Los Angeles Continuum of Care (LA CoC) encompasses all cities within Los Angeles County, excluding Glendale, Long Beach, and Pasadena. Annually, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) releases a competitive Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the CoC program at the national level. As the Collaborative Applicant for the LA CoC, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) usually takes responsibility for preparing and submitting the funding application on behalf of the LA CoC.
LAHSA is a joint authority of the Los Angeles City and County created in 1993 to address the issue of homelessness in Los Angeles County. It is the lead agency in the HUD-funded Los Angeles Continuum of Care and manages funds for programs providing shelter housing and services to people experiencing homelessness.
