Councilman Curren Price joined Councilmembers Kevin de León and Monica Rodriguez on Aug. 10 to celebrate the City Council’s commitment and goal to add 25,000 new units of homeless housing by 2025 as part of the "A Way Home” citywide homeless housing development plan. Councilman Price seconded the motion, which passed 13-0 and addresses Los Angeles’ homelessness crisis.
“In my District, I have and continue to remain committed to building Affordable and Permanent Supportive Housing units, rapid rehousing, safe parking and seeking any and all creative solutions that will help our neighbors move off of the streets,” added Councilman Price. “The plan before us today sets a clear pathway to stability, security and dignity for all of Los Angeles. This is our promise to our veterans, seniors, victims of domestic violence, Transition Age Youth, and anyone else suffering from the condition of homelessness.”
The latest initiative supports Councilmember Price’s ongoing dedication to expand the production of affordable and PSH units in his District with thousands of units on the way to support working families and reduce the unhoused population in CD 9. Under Councilmember Price’s leadership, a total of 24 sites have been identified in the Ninth District. These projects will provide more than 2,600 units of affordable and homeless housing.
