You’ll pay more to help homeless: Mayor wants ‘yes’ vote on $1.2B record bond measure

Are you willing to pay more property taxes to help the homeless? Then you should vote “yes” on a ballot proposal in November for the most expensive bond measure in Los Angeles history.

Mayor Eric Garcetti, City Council members and representatives of labor, business and nonprofit groups officially launched a campaign Monday to convince Los Angeles voters to approve a $1.2 billion bond measure to pay for about 10,000 units of homeless housing over the next decade.

“I urge all Angelenos to vote for Measure HHH,” Garcetti said at a kick-off event at New Genesis, a 106-unit permanent supportive housing complex in downtown Los Angeles.

Garcetti said city and county officials over the past year have “stepped up with the resources that we can find” to address homelessness, and now need voters’ help in coming up with a larger, more sustained source of funding.

The measure calls for borrowing up to $1.2 billion to fund permanent supportive housing, defined as residential developments that include on-site mental health, substance abuse and other types of counseling services. Some of the funds can also go toward affordable housing for people who are at-risk of becoming homeless, and other facilities serving the transient population.
