Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis released the following statement after the Board of Supervisors passed her motion to speed up the implementation of City Homelessness Plans by reimbursing costs incurred by cities prior to contract execution with the County:

“I am a strong supporter of our cities who are ready to partner with the County to create shelters, build supportive housing, and enhance the delivery of homeless services. Today’s action demonstrates LA County’s continued commitment to work with our cities to help combat this crisis, cut through bureaucratic red tape, and do whatever is necessary to support our unhoused population.”
