TOMORROW: Governor Newsom to Visit Mather Veterans Village and Issue Homelessness Challenge to Cities and Counties

MATHER – A day after unleashing hundreds of millions of dollars in state Emergency Homeless Aid and announcing the hiring of an expert consultant, Governor Gavin Newsom will visit the Mather Veterans Village, where he will offer an opportunity for cities and counties to partner with the state on immediate impact solutions to tackle the homelessness crisis.

Today in San Bernardino County, Governor Newsom met with residents at the Loma Linda Veterans’ Village who were previously homeless but secured housing thanks to subsidized vouchers.

In September, the Governor signed 13 bills into law building on the state’s historic $1 billion investment in the 2019 Budget Act. The budget provided $650 million to local governments for emergency homelessness aid. In July, Governor Newsom announced regional leaders and statewide experts who will advise his Administration on solutions to address the state’s homelessness epidemic.
