In 2017, voters approved Measure H to provide an estimated $355 million countywide for 10 years to fund ongoing services and housing to address the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles County. With these new resources and the 47 approved strategies to prevent and combat homelessness as a framework, the Los Angeles County Homelessness Initiative provided planning grants to cities interested in developing local strategies and partnerships that will provide the housing and program services necessary to successfully and permanently house homeless residents in our community.
This City of Palmdale Plan to Prevent and Combat Homelessness (Plan) provides an assessment of homelessness in Palmdale, a description of the resources available to address the challenge, opportunities for local and regional collaboration and locally-developed goals to address the specific housing and supportive service needs of Palmdale’s homeless residents.
Progress shall be measured periodically and the Plan shall be updated and modified as necessary over time until all residents of the City are housed. The City anticipates the period of performance for the goals of this Plan to be July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2023.
