“We are grateful to HUD and its Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs for renewing assistance for local rehousing programs. We will use these funds to continue our efforts to reduce unsheltered homelessness throughout the Los Angeles Continuum of Care,” said Dr. Va Lecia Kellum Adams, Chief Executive Officer of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. “We also thank HUD for providing additional funding to create a new permanent supportive housing project and support our efforts to help domestic violence survivors end their homelessness.”
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 Opportunity (NOFO) for the CoC program nationally. As the LA CoC’s Collaborative Applicant, LAHSA typically prepares and submits the funding application on behalf of the LA CoC.
HUD’s announcement includes renewal funding for existing projects and new funding for the LA CoC.
