LA Area Homeless Service Providers to Announce $105 Million in Grants

Home for Good, an ambitious, business sector-powered plan to eradicate veteran and chronic homelessness in Los Angeles, will announce tomorrow that it is dispersing more than $105 million in grants to area permanent supportive housing providers.

The grants include $5 million raised from private donors like the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, the United Way and Goldman Sachs. The rest of the money comes from government entities that have agreed to spend more on Home for Good’s target population — veterans and those who have been on the streets for years.

Of the $100 million contributed by various city and county entities, $55 million represent new dollars for programs that focus on the chronically homeless, said Jerry Neuman, co-chair of Home for Good, a partnership between the L.A. Area Chamber of Commerce and the United Way of Greater Los Angeles.
