Measure H, in just the first 5 years, will enable 45,000 families/individuals to exit homelessness into permanent housing and help an additional 30,000 families/individuals avoid homelessness. It will invest up $350 million A YEAR for 10 years into ending homelessness, and is critical to the implementation of Prop HHH, providing critical services to the 8,000 – 10,000 units of permanent supportive housing that will be built in the next decade.

The measure will also make sure that funds are allocated equitably across the county to serve the over 47,000 individuals who are experiencing homelessness in the region. Additionally as a “special” 1/4 cent sales tax, which averages to about $1 a month to the average consumer, Measure H can only be used for its specific purpose and is guaranteed to help people who are homeless.
