Countywide Prioritization Systems—Annual Placement Rate into Permanent Housing

Goal: Place chronically homeless individuals in Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) through the countywide prioritization system at the rate needed to meet community goals.

2018 Status: Placements into PSH and other Permanent Housing (PH) increased for the overall population. During 2018, LAHSA started to collect data on housing placements from the County’s Health Agency, local housing authorities, and other partners. Some of the data from external partners do not come with critical information such as household type or other demographic information. Therefore, LAHSA is unable to report whether the surge in PSH placements is made up of predominately of single individuals, of chronically homeless people, or of veterans.
