Friday, March 6, 2020

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — State and local leaders are requesting $2 billion in funding to combat homelessness.

Mayor Eric Garcetti says the state has a surplus, so the money is available.

Assembly Bill 3300 would appropriate $2 billion, beginning with the 2020-21 fiscal year and each following fiscal year, to provide grant funds to address homelessness challenges, including affordable housing, rental assistance and other services.
