VENICE, CA — Mayor Eric Garcetti joined Gov. Gavin Newsom and other local leaders Friday to announce the city of Los Angeles was awarded nearly $40 million to create permanent housing for homeless people through the state’s fourth round of the Homekey initiative.
“Confronting and ending homelessness is a team effort, demanding attention, resources and investment from cities, counties and our state,” Garcetti said. “Los Angeles has taken full advantage of Homekey, submitting applications for 16 properties which, if approved, will add hundreds of permanent supportive housing units to our stock and allow us to bring more of our most vulnerable neighbors indoors.”
