According to a mandatory agenda published Tuesday as part of a federal court, the city is responsible for creating 5,300 new beds by April 2021 and 700 additional beds by December 2021 for a total of 6,000 new beds. Bis April muss die Stadt zus-tzlich 700 Betten zur Verf-gung stellen, die “in einer Vereinbarung oder einem Plan zwischen Stadt und Landkreis betten kunnen,” hei`t es in der Mitteilung des Landkreises. In total, there are 66,000 homeless people across the county, including more than 41,000 in the city of Los Angeles, according to the tally. The high unemployment rate resulting from the public health crisis is expected to have increased since then. A los Angeles Home Services Authority tally in January reported that more than 66,400 homeless people lived in Los Angeles County, by far the largest individual concentration in the state. Among them, there were more than 41,000 within the city limits. These two figures increased by more than 12% compared to the previous year. These figures date back to January, before the pandemic, but they showed a persistent lag in the way homelessness is distributed by race. Black residents make up 8% of the population of Los Angeles County, but 34% of the homeless. City will live 6,700 beds for the homeless population around highways if the city is able to provide 5,300 beds in the first 10 months of the agreement, then the county would provide a $8 million bonus. The approved conditions require that 6,000 beds be made available within 10 months and that the remaining 700 be made available within 18 months. The city-borough agreement was presented on Tuesday in a mandatory timetable in the federal court. The judge who led the case has previously said that the struggle and the waste of time have hampered efforts to reach an agreement.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California filed a lawsuit Thursday claiming that sexual abuse, overcrowding and unhealthy conditions are rampant in three homeless shelters in Orange County and that conditions have not improved after a damning housing report in 2019. After weeks of negotiations, the city and Los Angeles County announced Thursday an agreement to create 5,300 beds for the homeless over the next 10 months, which will provide 6,000 beds in a year and a half. More resources, including by the state, are also available to local officials to combat homelessness. The appeal called on the judge to put in place a “legally enforceable mandate” to establish homeless services and a sufficient number of beds for anyone who needs them on a given night. L.a..
