    and Urban Development s HUD funding process HUD recently allowed individuals to weigh in on HEARTH regulations which gave advocates a new opportunity to request changes to the McKinney Vento funding formula We are excited to report that under United Way of Greater Los Angeles leadership over 30 organizations including Los Angeles Mission Miami Coalition for the Homeless Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness Southern California Association of Non Profit Housing the Home For Good Business Leaders Task Force and the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce sent letters to HUD asking that funds for homelessness be distributed more equitably Furthermore Natalie Price from Congresswoman Lucille Roybal Allard s office and Matt Weiner from Congressman Henry A Waxman s office helped lead Congressional outreach Thanks to the leadership of Congresswoman Roybal Allard s and Congressman Waxman s offices 21 congressional leaders signed on to advocate for a revised funding formula In their letters stakeholders from across the U S urged HUD to include key factors directly related to homelessness and to create one funding formula for all metropolitan regions Thank you to everyone that voiced their concerns about the McKinney Vento funding formula Together we can assure effective solutions to homelessness For more information on the campaign to revise the current funding formula read United Way s Policy Brief Deadline Extended Act Now to Assure Your Community Has Resources to End Homelessness October 16 2012 By admin Advocacy Home for Good For decades federal funding for homeless solutions has been distributed using outdated funding formulas These formulas result in an ineffective distribution of funds in communities across the country Research demonstrates that poverty coupled with housing market conditions related to availability of affordable housing and overcrowding are major determinants of homelessness We urge HUD to consider these factors in the creation of a new McKinney Vento funding formula The campaign to change the McKinney Vento funding formula began in 2009 when 65 national leaders recommended a change in HUD s funding process Over the next month HUD will be accepting comments on HEARTH regulations which will give us a new opportunity to weigh in on these issues When developing a revised formula we request the adoption of two major recommendations Include only key factors directly related to homelessness poverty availability of affordable housing and overcrowded housing cash loan places in columbus ohio Create one formula for all metropolitan regions rather than continuing to use multiple formulas Take Action Make sure your community has the resources it needs to address homelessness We have drafted a template letter for advocates to send click HERE to download the letter and urge HUD to distribute funds more equitably The deadline to send your letters is November 16th A new funding formula will ensure that when additional appropriations are available they are dispersed to have the greatest impact We only have a short time to make this happen so it s critical that we come together now to shape how homeless dollars are distributed for years to

    aligned in believing that everyone has the right to peace and quiet enjoyment of their home That said our primary concern with the proposed changes in the ordinance is that it will increase homelessness in Los Angeles City while not addressing nuisance and bad behavior in neighborhoods Los Angeles has the largest homeless population in the nation and a critical shortage of affordable housing This ordinance will make one of the most effective housing retention options for low income individuals veterans and families illegal shared housing in R1 and R2 zoned areas payday loan locations in aurora co For example an elderly woman who rents her home and provides housing for a student in driving her for medical appointments would be considered to be operating a boarding or rooming house and not permitted in low density zones Any form of sharing housing except a single family unit would be prohibited from doing so in R1 and R2 zones Based on the American Communities Survey in Los Angeles City alone almost 50 000 low income households use shared housing to maintain a roof over their head The ordinance as currently written eliminates Federal and state housing support in shared housing arrangements in R1 and R2 zones Section 8 Shelter plus Care Mental Health Service Act and Veteran Affairs Supportive Housing assistance programs require each recipient receiving housing assistance to have their own lease For many this is only way they can afford stable housing and is part of their treatment program Shared housing is one of the least expensive housing models available to end homelessness and this ordinance severely restricts its use In addition the Ordinance will displace mentally and physically disabled residents currently in R1 and R2 zoned shared housing and stop the development of critically needed shared housing programs for homeless veterans The ordinance as currently proposed will reduce access to badly needed alcohol and drug abuse programs Occupancy restrictions reducing the number of occupant residents in bedrooms to two in alcohol and drug abuse facilities regardless of room size will result in the loss of these valuable beds in Los Angeles City at a time when recovery programs are desperately needed The ordinance may jeopardize HUD funding to Los Angeles City The City has an affirmative duty to develop policies and programs that further fair housing We believe this ordinance is contrary to this requirement and places McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance programs the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program Section 8 and Shelter Plus Care housing assistance programs HOME dollars Housing for People with Aids and Community Development Block Grant funding at risk The McKinney Vento program alone brings in over 60 million dollars a year for the City from HUD to address homelessness http homeforgoodla com cache unm emergency loans html The ordinance will likely result in the City incurring protracted legal fees in its defense at a time when these funds are needed to maintain vital programs and services The Community Care Facilities Ordinance will not solve
