The City of Los Angeles has secured state funding to cover security improvements and renovations at housing sites across the city.

“This year’s budget reflects our commitment to confronting the number one crisis our city is facing,” said Mayor Karen Bass. “I want to thank Assemblywoman Schiavo, Assemblymember Gabriel, Assemblymember Carrillo, Senator Menjivar and Senator Stern for working together with us to secure critical funds that will be used to make repairs and open more rooms in order to bring more Angelenos inside.”

Cash will go to interim housing sites:

  • $410,000 – Travelodge/Devonshire Lodge, a former motel acquired through the State’s Homekey program for use as interim housing and conversion to permanent supportive housing. The site is located in Chatsworth and has 75 units.
  • $500,000 – Huntington Villas: a former motel which the city bought in 2020 for interim housing and conversion to permanent supportive housing.
  • $800,000 – The Sieroty/Howard Johnson: former motel acquired for interim housing and conversion to permanent supportive housing.

“It is critical that we continue to tackle our city’s homelessness crisis with an all-hands-on-deck approach,” said Councilmember John Lee. “I am grateful to all of the leaders in the California Legislature who have been working diligently to deliver resources that bolster our ability to respond to the homelessness crisis in the San Fernando Valley and throughout Los Angeles.”
