California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that he will allocate $12 billion to address the “seemingly intractable” homelessness crisis, indicating that this is the largest amount spent to save homeless families.

$7 billion will be used to obtain more temporary housing as part of the “Project Roomkey” program, through which funds are provided to cities and counties to rent hotel rooms for the homeless.

$1.75 billion will be spent to build “low-cost homes”, about $ 450 million to address student homelessness and $ 150 million to “stabilize and re-house” people who have been provided with shelter under Project Roomkey.
