December 6, 2016 On 12/6/2016, SSG Executive Director Herbert Hatanaka and HOPICS Division representatives attended the LA County Board of Supervisors meeting to show support for Measure H. The Measure will be on the March 7th ballot and if it passes, it is expected to generate approximately $355 million annually through a ¼-cent County sales tax to exclusively fund proven ways to reduce and prevent homelessness and help an estimated 45,000 families and individuals move from homelessness to permanent housing in the measure’s first five years.
