On July 13, 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom signed a historic 2021-2022 California state budget, committing nearly $5 billion for homelessness. Driven, in large part, to the continued advocacy of our system partners, the final budget contains $1 billion per year in multi-year homelessness funding for cities, counties, and Continuums of Care.

The budget also includes $2.75 billion for Project Homekey, one-time funding for street-based homelessness and innovative approaches to addressing homelessness among families, and key enhancements and significant funding increases to state-funded programs such as HomeSafe, the CalWORKs Housing Support Program (HSP), the Bringing Families Home program, and the Housing and Disability Advocacy Program (HDAP).

Please see LAHSA’s overview of key budget provisions impacting the homeless services system and people experiencing homelessness.
