Mayor Bass Applauds State's New Funding of $196.2 Million for Affordable Housing Across Los Angeles County
February 9, 2023
Mayor Bass was alongside California Secretary Lourdes M. Castro Ramírez (Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency) today when she announced that the State is awarding $196.2 million for multifamily development and infill development in the City of Los Angeles and across Los Angeles County. This funding was awarded through a new State process that streamlined four separate applications into just one submission.
Mayor Bass made the following statement:
“Thank you Governor Newsom and Secretary Castro Ramírez for locking arms with Los Angeles to increase the speed and lower the cost of affordable housing constructions,” said Mayor Bass. “With more than 40,000 Angelenos living unhoused today, the time to clear bureaucratic delays at all levels of government is now. We all must act with urgency, and that's what the State is doing with this initiative.”
