L.A. Controller Ron Galperin released a report, “The High Cost of Homeless Housing,” on the results to date of Prop. HHH, the City’s voter-approved $1.2 billion bond program intended to subsidize the development of up to 10,000 units of supportive housing over 10 years. Controller Galperin’s report highlights how high construction costs and a lengthy approval process have prevented the HHH program from achieving its voter-mandated goals — and that immediate changes are needed.
Along with the report, Controller Galperin created an HHH resource map showing the cost and status of the City’s 114 HHH projects. Users can click on a pin to view information about each project, including the developer’s name, the cost, the development status, and the total and per unit HHH amount associated with it. An HHH infographic outlining HHH progress is also included.
