SKID ROW- Last November, voters passed Measure HHH (also known as Triple H), which will generate $1.2 billion dollars solely for housing for homeless individuals and families. In March of this year, voters also passed Measure H (also known as Single H), which is proposed to generate more than $350 million annually over 10 years (to put it bluntly that’s a little less than $4 billion dollars) solely for services for homeless individuals and families and also for those who suffer from mental illness.To be clear, that’s over $3 billion dollars of NEW funding to help address extremely old issues. This is in addition to the already generated taxpayer funding (in the billions of dollars) that are allocated annually to address the very same issues which include homelessness and mental illness. (For example, the LA County Department of Mental Health has an annual budget of $3 billion dollars). So the question in our community then becomes “How will all of this money help those in need that it’s supposed to be for?”
