Bridge Housing
A Bridge Home

In April 2018, Mayor Garcetti and the City Council declared an emergency shelter crisis and took advantage of a new state law that enables cities to construct bridge housing — faster than ever before — on any land owned or leased by the City. To expedite construction, the Mayor has continued to advocate among City, County, and State partners to continue increasing funding for our bridge housing programs, ease regulatory barriers, and services. Today, the majority of City Council Districts have pledged and surpassed their goal to put a minimum of 222 new units in neighborhoods across Los Angeles over the next two years.
