Measure H is a sales tax measure that aims to help in prevention and raise funds for homeless services.
According to an LA Times article, it would produce $350 million towards services for the homeless every year. If voted yes for on March 7, a quarter-cent sales tax would be put into place for 10 years towards funding for the homeless community in Los Angeles.
The vote Yes on H website said that “in the first five years, the proceeds of Measure H would enable 45,000 families/individuals to exit homelessness into permanent housing and help an additional 30,000 families/individuals avoid homelessness”.
On Saturday, February 25, around 900 Angelenos marched in favor of Measure H.
