LA Times – 22% surge in number of older homeless people catches L.A. officials off guard

Please see the LA Times front page article:




LAAAC’s Policy Action Team (PAT) has been working locally on advocacy in older adult housing and homelessness and is advocating for:


1) Increased supply of affordable units with services attached that are targeted for older adults

2) Prevention solutions targeted to the needs of older adults whose incomes will not rebound

3) Homeless services and interventions targeted specifically to the needs of older adults

4) Collaboration and relationship building between older adult homeless and at-risk service providers

5) Universal design to increase accessibility of newly created affordable units

6) Deep ongoing subsidy for non-special needs older adults living at 30% ami and below


Please see the attached PAT Fact Sheet for more information.
