The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded over $188 million for FY 2023 renewal and new projects to the Los Angeles Continuum of Care (LA CoC). This amount represents an increase of $24.56 million over HUD’s allocation to the LA CoC in FY 2022. This increase includes an adjustment for Fair Market Rent for existing programs and new programs.

Included in the $188 million, LAHSA will receive $10.26 million in new funding for two new permanent supportive housing projects. This will add 435 units of permanent supportive housing to the LA area’s inventory. LAHSA will also receive $1.4 million to provide 47 beds to domestic violence survivors experiencing homelessness in 31 time-limited subsidy slots.
“We are grateful to HUD and the Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs for renewing and expanding assistance for our rehousing programs. We look forward to bringing more people inside through supportive housing and increasing our efforts to help more domestic violence survivors find a home as a result of this funding,” said Dr. Va Lecia Kellum Adams, Chief Executive Officer of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. “LAHSA will continue to work with HUD to bring necessary resources to Los Angeles that will address the humanitarian crisis on our streets.”
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.
LAHSA is a joint powers authority of the city and county of Los Angeles, created in 1993 to address the problem of homelessness in Los Angeles County. LAHSA is the lead agency in the HUD-funded Los Angeles Continuum of Care and coordinates and manages federal, state, county, and city funds for programs providing shelter, housing, and services to people experiencing homelessness.
