Voters in the City of Los Angeles approved Measure HHH in November 2016, which will raise $1.2 billion to construct 10,000 PSH units over the next decade. As the City begins to deploy the resources to construct these units, a PSH ordinance to improve the permitting and zoning processes will be instrumental in ensuring the City meets its goals. Your comments and support as service providers, housing developers, and community members are critically important in supporting the PSH ordinance.
