City of Los Angeles
Prop HHH Progress Report

In November 2016, the voters of Los Angeles overwhelmingly voted in favor of Proposition HHH (Prop HHH, HHH), which provides funds for the development of supportive housing for homeless individuals and families throughout the city. The Prop HHH Supportive Housing Loan Program development proposals use both traditional and innovative financing and construction techniques on this particular type of housing. The program provides an average HHH loan commitment of $140,000 per unit (apartment); developers must combine HHH loans with other financial resources to pay for the total development costs. The dashboard below shows the progress made, the different stages of the housing development, the location, and financing details for each each housing development awarded HHH loans. For more information on HHH, visit: hcidla.lacity.org/housing/supportive-housing-prop-hhh.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The City does not control the cost to develop supportive housing projects, however to
maximize investment of taxpayer dollars, the City limits the amount of money it will commit to
each project. The average City loan amount to developers for HHH projects is $133,000 per
Apartment (unit).

Los Angeles is one of the hottest and highest cost real estate markets in the nation, and the current building boom has increased competition for land, labor and materials. Contributing
cost factors rarely mentioned include the effect of new U.S. tariffs on Canadian lumber and
foreign-made steel, and labor costs.

Generally, soft costs are project-related costs other than Land and Construction. Typical costs
include, but are not limited to: architectural fees, construction loan interest and fees
(origination, cost of issuance, title and recording, etc.), permanent financing fees, legal fees,
contingency and operating reserves, other project costs (local development impact fees,
permits, furnishings) and developer costs it will commit (project administration, design
oversight, etc.) Depending on the relative cost of the land and (hard) construction, the
percentage of the overall development costs of a project can vary widely.

The first HHH housing opened its doors to new residents in December 2019. XX housing complexes have opened since, and XX more expected to open in 2021, and XX projected to open in 2022.

Supportive Housing (SH) combines affordable housing with services that support the residents,
which may include mental and physical health services, education and job training, and drug
and alcohol treatment. The HHH Supportive Housing (SH) Loan Program funds the “brick and
mortar” construction, not building operations or resident services. Voter-approved County
Measure H provides funding for services, along with other government and philanthropic
resources.

Homeless services providers throughout the County use an online system operated by the Los
Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) called the Coordinated Entry System to connect
their clients – homeless residents – to housing and supportive service resources listed in the
online system.

The implementation timeline for Prop HHH is through the year 2026.
