LA Council Members Consider City Oversight Over Homelessness, Review of LAHSA


Council President Nury Martinez and three other council members called Friday for a review of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority’s role in addressing the city’s homelessness crisis.

In a motion filed Friday, Martinez and councilmen Kevin de León, Curren Price and Paul Krekorian sought a report on the governance structure of LAHSA and how the city could increase direct oversight over homeless outreach and services. They also sought a strategy for the city to transition to its own system to coordinate services for unhoused individuals, along with possibly creating a department, office or division for in-house homeless services.

LAHSA was created in 1993 as an independent, joint powers authority by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Los Angeles Mayor and City Council. It manages over $800 million in annual funding to provide homeless services, according to its website.
