By Darryl DuFay

Note:   This is to let readers know more of what is happening to the funds for the homeless and the criteria being established. The four-page report can be accessed at http://clkrep.lacity.org/onlinedocs/2017/17-0090-s2_rpt_MAYOR_11-03-2017.pdf  DuFay has highlighted the important aspects of the report.

Homelessness and Poverty Committee reported 17 January that they will be moving forward with the request to send to the Mayor the current rules and regulations report for release and use of the HHH money.  This is a summary of the changes made following the thirty-day public comment period, which ended October 14, 2017.

The Opening Paragraph

The Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) requests authority from the Mayor and City Council to approve the recommendations contained in this report relative to the release of the 2017 Proposition HHH Permanent Supportive Housing Loan Program (HHH) Regulations with proposed revisions; and, open the 2017 HHH Call for Projects (CFP) to solicit developer applications for funding. 

Supportive Service Plans

Several comments were also made stating that the case management ratio should be changed from one full time equivalent (FTE) staff member per 15 units for the chronically homeless. HCIDLA agrees to one FTE per 20 units, and has made the appropriate changes as reflected in the attached modified regulations.

It was also stated that the LA County Health Agency in lieu of Supportive Services Plan will specify what supportive services are to be funded by Measure  H.

Asset Management

According to the Proposition HHH ballot measure, a maximum of 20% of the total of HHH funding can be used toward non-PSH affordable housing.

Geographic Distribution

This assessment comprehensively analyzes the disparities in access to opportunities people face, ranging from racial or ethnic segregation; unequal educational, job, or transportation options; to disproportionate housing needs. The goal is to increase housing choice for all community members by taking meaningful actions to foster inclusive communities free from barriers and encourage integrated and balanced living patterns. 

Implementation Plan

This was the proposed calendar.  Dates have all been slipped.  Use dates as a reference.
