The Los Angeles City Council today approved a Watts property as the site of a Proposition HHH supportive housing project for homeless Angelenos.

The council, on a 13-0 vote with two members absent, directed the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department to make a conditional financial commitment of $6.72 million for the project at 1522 E. 102nd St.

The financial terms are subject to approval by the Proposition HHH Citizen’s Oversight Committee and the Proposition HHH Administrative Oversight Committee.


HCIDLA was also authorized to negotiate agreements for the project’s acquisition, pre-development and construction and to create a side-by-side comparison on the proposed cost and time line compared to existing HHH-funded projects.

Voters in November 2016 passed Proposition HHH to use $1.2 billion to build 10,000 units for homeless Angelenos, more than tripling Los Angeles’ annual production of supportive housing.

Projects are currently taking between three and six years to complete and some developers have asked for extensions ranging from 42 days to more than a year, Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin said in September.

The first permanent supportive housing project funded by Prop HHH opened at 88th Street and Vermont in January 2020.
