  • Mercedes Márquez reflects on Home For Good and federal partnership
    up the U S Interagency Council on Homelessness the U S Department of Housing and Urban Development HUD is committed to Opening Doors and to transforming the way our federal government responds to this national crisis Through this commitment we acknowledge that we can only get to the finish line with Opening Doors if we continue to fund targeted programs while also improving local housing and service delivery systems and increasing access to federal mainstream assistance That is why it is so essential to continue to strengthen our collaboration Los Angeles has set the bar high by aligning public and private funding for permanent supportive housing Coupled with improved targeting and the creation of housing and services to help people thrive Home for Good is well on its way to delivering on its promise As a result of last year s Summit there were six priority recommendations identified for the federal government to support Home for Good s implementation My colleague Barbara Poppe at the U S Interagency Council on Homelessness was proud to share that we have made progress on all six cash advance amite la HUD s Office of Community Planning and Development has also invested substantially to support your success Last December we awarded 86 5 million in homeless assistance to renew funding to hundreds of programs through the four continuums of care in Los Angeles County This is in addition to our robust investments in the HUD Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program and other mainstream housing and community development initiatives in communities throughout Los Angeles County HUD remains steadfast in our commitment to partner with you to further solutions to homelessness so we may one day welcome all homeless Angelenos home for good Leave a Reply Cancel reply Send Us Message Full Name Email Address Website

  • Community Care Facilities Ordinance limits shared housing and independent living for seniors
    shared living residences At one shared living house nine tenants occupy a duplex ALA rehabilitated and now manages Each tenant has a private bedroom and bathroom and shares common space Tenants have individual lease agreements with ALA Shared housing keeps housing costs low while also offering tenants the option of socialization with fellow housemates The demand for affordable housing alternatives like shared housing is only going to increase as Baby Boomers retire By 2030 it is estimated that as many as three million Southern Californians will exceed the age of 60 doubling the current population Up to half of these seniors will live on modest fixed incomes like social security and be unable to sustain high mortgage or rent payments after they retire shared housing may be their only realistic option The current economic crisis warrants creative solutions to meeting our basic needs not restrictive mandates that limit our options Seniors share housing to find companionship offset housing costs or receive assistance with daily tasks while remaining safe in their own home Shared housing promotes socially sustainable communities by compelling people to collaborate to solve problems And it provides additional needed resources to homeowners seeking to supplement their income during rough economic times Rather than limiting seniors options we encourage the City Council to rethink its anti shared housing proposal The City should encourage shared housing not prevent it To voice your opposition to the Community Care Facilities Ordinance please contact your District Representative For a list of Los Angeles Councilmembers click HERE Leave a Reply Cancel reply Send Us Message Full Name Email Address Website Message You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime em i q cite s strike strong SEND MESSAGE About H

  • Community Care Facilities Ordinance threatens Permanent Supportive Housing in the City of Los Angeles
    for whom shared housing provides the best and most prevalent opportunity to live independently Over 250 units of government subsidized shared housing for people with disabilities would be eliminated under this proposal By requiring that they be on only one lease the ordinance either eliminates the housing federal programs require separate leases for shared housing or requires everyone who is sharing to be on one lease Putting everyone on one lease puts a family at the mercy of a total stranger landlords could evict one tenant based on the behavior of the co tenant The ordinance would also devastate working families In Los Angeles over 43 000 families share housing in single family homes Families share to make housing more affordable to live in safer neighborhoods and to allow their children to attend better schools Much of that shared housing is in residential zones The proposed ordinance would eliminate this shared housing or require that they share one lease making them vulnerable to eviction The ordinance s author Councilmember Englander intends the ordinance to eliminate nuisances from certain group homes however rather than eliminating nuisances it eliminates housing Even where a group home is creating a nuisance as long as the group home operator compels tenants to share one lease it would not violate the ordinance However where a group was safe and well managed and there is no nuisance where there is more than one lease it would be eliminated In addition to being bad policy the ordinance would violate federal Fair Housing Administration Act and Rehabilitation Act state fair housing law zoning authority and the state s constitutional right to privacy It would also conflict with some federal housing subsidy requirements All of this would mean the City could not satisfy the federal government s requirements that it affirmatively further fair housing As a result the ordinance could compromise millions in federal funding for Los Angeles Rather than adopt a patently illegal ordinance that compromises desperately needed federal funding and that fails to deal with the nuisance problem it seeks to address the City Council should pass only the Dr Jekyl part of the ordinance that puts the City in conformance with state law and appoint a task force to target existing enforcement resources to regulate nuisance buildings This will save money and solve the problem Easy Money Loan Payment To voice your opposition to the Community Care Facilities Ordinance please contact your District Representative For a list of Los Angeles Councilmembers click HERE Leave a Reply Cancel reply Send Us Message Full Name Email Address Website Message You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime em i q cite s strike strong SEND MESSAGE About H ome For Good is an Action Plan to end chronic and veteran homelessness in L A County by 2016 The plan was launched in December 2010 by the Business Leader s Task Force on Homelessness a partnership
