Mayor Eric Garcetti on May 19 celebrated the opening of two Prop. HHH-funded permanent supportive housing complexes — the HHH Rose Apartments and the PATH Villas Montclair, which together will provide housing and services to 80 Angelenos experiencing homelessness.
“These two openings represent the steady drumbeat of progress we promised to Angelenos when they said ‘yes’ to Prop HHH and empowered us to surge ahead with comprehensive solutions to homelessness,” Garcetti said. “These ribbon-cuttings are a clear marker of how far we’ve come in our mission to welcome Angelenos into high-quality, permanent supportive units that can end the vicious cycle of homelessness and make real movement toward ending this crisis.”
The PATH Villas Montclair in Crenshaw consists of 45 studio apartments for formerly unhoused Angelenos. The Rose Apartments contains 35 units. Both developments were funded through a variety of sources, including Measure HHH, and offer on-site supportive services, such as individual case management, community building activities and career development programs.
The city has expanded the homelessness budget to more than 20 times what it was eight years ago and launched the A Bridge Home shelter program, which has served more than 5,500 residents while HHH-funded projects are built.
In his latest budget, Garcetti proposed a $1.164 billion commitment to homelessness solutions, the largest proposed investment by nearly $200 million. The proposal includes more than 3,700 permanent supportive housing units, $331 million for more than 2,200 total housing units through Prop. HHH, and $255 million for a new round of Project a, which will add 928 permanent housing units.
Since Prop. HHH passed in 2016, 51 permanent supportive and affordable housing projects with more than 3,100 apartments have come online, including 25 Prop. HHH projects with more than 1,500 units. Seventy-four permanent supportive and affordable housing units with more than 4,700 apartments are currently under construction, with 19 projects breaking ground this year.
