Three new projects providing Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) to homeless in the Ninth District were approved on Oct. 15 by the Los Angeles City Council. This was part of the latest round of Prop. HHH funding awarded, bringing the total of PSH units authorized in the 9th District to 712.
The newly approved projects are: Hope on Broadway (48 PSH units); 4507 Main St. (33 PSH units plus an additional 30 affordable housing units); and Central Apartments (56 PSH units).
"I am so proud of the progress we have been making to bring forth an unprecedented number of permanent supportive housing units for our most vulnerable. The hard work continues to pay off, and we will continue to lead by example in our efforts," said Councilman Curren Price.

A proposed Fair Work Week policy [Council File 19-0229], championed by Councilman Curren Price, took another step forward this week and a draft of the ordinance is expected by November.
On Oct. 15, the City’s Economic Development Committee, which Councilmember Price chairs, approved a report of the implementation recommendations for a Los Angeles Fair Work Week law.
Under the new ordinance, employers would have to provide retail employees in this City two weeks' notice of their work schedules and predictability in pay. The law would require flexible schedules, protections against retaliation for declining additional hours not communicated in the schedules in advance, and the right to rest between shifts of 10 hours, among other regulations.
Councilman Price said he anticipates a final vote in Council by the end of this year. The policy is expected to be in place by the beginning of 2020, with a six month education period for retail employers before enforcement begins.
