Los Angeles Voters Care about Ending Homelessness: Proposition HHH and Measure H
In 2016 and 2017, voters in Los Angeles resoundingly approved two new funding sources to combat homelessness. Downtown Women’s Center played a key role in the passage of these historic measures.
What it Funds
City of Los Angeles
A $1.2 billion bond to build 10,000 units of permanent supportive housing over 10 years
Passed November 2016 with 76% approval
Development of physical buildings
Los Angeles County
A quarter-cent sales tax that will invest $355 million over 10 years in homeless services
Passed March 2017 with 69% approval
Help us continue vital services
Although Prop HHH and Measure H provide crucial funding for housing and services in Los Angeles, they do not include funding for many of DWC's day-to-day operational costs and Day Center services. We rely on community support to continue providing the programs and services we know are effective in ending homelessness for women. Supporters like you make our work possible!
