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?

A:

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.
