The homeless count released earlier this month shows that the challenge of homelessness in Los Angeles County continues to get worse, with no signs of slowing down— nearly 60,000 Angelenos are homeless, an increase of 50% over the past 8 years.
The Los Angeless Homeless Services Authority reports that the County needs 520,000 units of affordable housing, but only 10,000 units are in the pipeline.
Abundant Housing LA has developed a set of policies that will rapidly increase our housing stock, fund and create affordable housing, and increase security and protections for renters.
Thank you to the 70 individuals who submitted an advocacy letterlast week telling our elected officials to not roll back progress on ADUs!
AHLA joined a coalition to support a vacancy tax proposal. The first step in the Vacancy Tax process is for the City to study vacancies and collect data so we can determine if a Vacancy Tax is in fact beneficial. Assuming that this data supports a Vacancy Tax, we will work to make sure the policy is fair, non-discriminatory, and has no unintended other effects on housing. Feel free to provide feedback on this Facebook post.

A better future for Los Angeles is possible. We will map a more affordable, livable, and sustainable Los Angeles through improved housing policies.
Featuring Councilmember Mike Bonin, Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells, and Juan Matute, Deputy Director of the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies and Lecturer in Urban Planning, this event will explore the possible actions we can take today to build a better Los Angeles in the future. What will it take to make sure that people from all backgrounds and income levels can access affordable, high-quality housing? What will help our city reduce traffic, pollution, and sprawl?
We will be hearing from our speakers on these issues, and then working in breakout groups to brainstorm and plan ahead for the region. We want to hear from you about what you think the best actions and policies are to achieve a Positive Future for Los Angeles!... See MoreSee Less
