New homeless funding part of reform package
SACRAMENTO – (INT) - Governor Newsom Monday signed the largest funding and reform package for housing and homelessness in California history.
It’s part of the $100 billion California Comeback Plan. The package includes $10.3 billion for affordable housing and $12 billion over two years towards easing the homelessness crisis. While helping thousands of people leave the streets, it demands greater accountability and more urgency from local governments.
The new homelessness funding includes $5.8 billion to add 42,000 new housing units through Homekey – a national model for homeless housing.
