The Funders Together to End Homelessness Los Angeles Network is pleased to invite private philanthropic funders to our next event on April 1, "Housing Ends Homelessness: Supportive Housing Development Progress and Opportunities." In November 2016, voters in the City of Los Angeles approved Proposition HHH, a $1.2B housing bond to support the production of an additional 10,000 units of supportive housing. Two years later, California voters approved No Place Like Home, a statewide bond that will bring $230M into LA County this year alone for housing solutions. At the same time, rising development costs and policy barriers threaten our progress.
What efforts have been implemented, and what else can we do to build faster, cheaper and more effectively? Please join us for an in-depth conversation on supportive housing development and the continued role of philanthropy in accelerating production through lending and investment. You will hear from local development experts Rushmore Cervantes (LA Housing and Community Investment Department), Monique King-Viehland (CDC/HACoLA), Jen Kim (LA County Chief Executive Office), and Ben Winter (Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti), along with a dynamic panel to include Connie Chung (LA County Department of Regional Planning), Matt Glesne (LA Department of City Planning), Lynn Katano (CDC/HACoLA) and Sean Spear (HCIDLA).
Hear about progress on HHH, plans for No Place Like Home, and recent efforts, including:
- $4.5M awarded to five winners of the County Housing Innovation Challenge
- $120M pilot program from HHH funding aiming to build 1,000 units in 24 months
- Home for Good Funders Collaborative releasing an RFP to support developers with scalable ideas
RSVP with your name, organization and title to Emma Heffernan (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please note that this invitation is for private funders and United Ways. The invitation is nontransferable. Should you have a specific question for our panelists, please include with your RSVP.
