Through a program established by Los Angeles County and United Way of Greater Los Angeles’ Home For Good Funders Collaborative, Malibu and 46 other cities will receive a planning grant—ranging from $30,000 to $70,000—in response to “localized blueprints” for how each city would work with its contractors to confront rising homelessness.
The program, financed by the LA County Board of Supervisors with more than $2 million, seeks to “pursue regional solutions to the homeless crisis.”
“The county and its cities must work in partnership if we expect to succeed in our battle against homelessness,” LA County Board of Supervisors chair Mark RIdley-Thomas said in a statement.
Representatives from each city will gather at a strategic planning meeting, led by United Way’s Home For Good and the County, on Nov. 29 in downtown Los Angeles. For more information, visit unitedwayla.org.
