Alleviating the Housing Crisis: Where’s the Money?

  • This is a past program

Hammer Forum is made possible by the Rosenbloom Family

In 2016, L.A. voters overwhelmingly voted in support of Proposition HHH, a bond measure designed to generate more than $1 billion over ten years to create affordable housing for people experiencing homelessness. Six years later, nearly all of the funds have been allocated—but where is the housing? Anna Scott, journalist and creator of the KCRW podcasts Samaritansand City of Tents, speaks with Dr. Heidi Behforouz, Medical Director of Housing for Health at the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services, Stephanie Klasky-Gamer, president and CEO of LA Family Housing, and Miguel A. Santana, president of the Weingart Foundation and former City Administrative Officer for the City of Los Angeles, where he oversaw a $9 billion budget and designed LA's first comprehensive homelessness strategy.
