8. Housing doesn't seem to the complete answer to homelessness as there are other drivers such as mental illness and substance abuse. What about those problems?


Housing is the starting point for reducing homelessness. That is why 72% of the proposed funding will be used for to rehabilitate, preserve, and build new affordable housing units. An additional 15% will be used for operations and support services which will leverage other funding resources and to coordinate with existing mental health services to support people’s success once they have a stable place to call home. 8% will be used to administer the program and 5% will be available for rental assistance to help prevent homelessness.
