Los Angeles, CA (January 17, 2020)—The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced nearly $130 million for projects throughout the Los Angeles Continuum of Care (LA CoC). Announced as the first of two press releases, HUD awarded over $123 million under the Tier 1 renewal category, over $5 million for two new projects for survivors of domestic violence, and $1.25 million for the CoC Planning project. HUD will soon announce results for Tier 2 renewal grants and new project applications.
“This funding will allow LAHSA and its partners to continue to provide much needed services and programs for our most vulnerable neighbors,” said Heidi Marston, Interim Executive Director of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. “We extend our appreciation to HUD for providing this funding and look forward to continuing to work with our partners to provide a path out of homelessness for unhoused Angelenos.”
The LA CoC includes all cities in Los Angeles County, with the exceptions of Glendale, Long Beach, and Pasadena. Each year, HUD announces a competitive Notice of Funding Availability for the CoC Program nationally. As the LA CoC’s Collaborative Applicant, LAHSA prepares and submits the funding application on behalf of the LA CoC.
