Campaign details

The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday declared a state of emergency on homelessness, calling for $100 million to help address the growing crisis. The move, which was reported in a statement from the office of Mayor Eric Garcetti, was announced the same day the mayor unveiled his plans for moving people off the streets. Homelessness jumped 12% in the last two years in both the city and county of Los Angeles: the number of tents, makeshift encampments and vehicles occupied by homeless people soared 85%, to 9,535, according to biennial figures from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. Garcetti wants $13 million in emergency funding to grow homeless services and housing, most of which would be allocated in the form of subsidies. The mayor also stated that the "main pillars" of his plan include expanding a tracking system for homeless people, creating new centers for street dwellers to store their belongings and use social services; and implementing measures that could prevent people from losing their homes.
