California Governor Newsom Allocates $1 Billion to Address Homelessness Crisis
In a recent announcement, Governor Newsom unveiled plans to invest $1 billion in funding towards addressing the homelessness crisis in California.
As part of the initiative, the Governor also plans to deploy over 1,000 small homes to be used as interim housing for those living in encampments throughout the state.
The investment comes as part of the state’s efforts to reduce homelessness by 15% by 2025.
The funding will be distributed to local communities, including several major cities such as Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, and Sacramento.
Last year, communities throughout California committed to reducing homelessness by 2% over three years.
With the updated plan in place, the Governor is optimistic about achieving the 15% reduction goal by 2025.
The Newsom Administration is expected to deploy 1,200 small homes as part of the initiative, providing temporary housing for those experiencing homelessness.
The Governor hopes that the investment will help combat the homelessness crisis and improve the lives of those affected by it.
