The El Monte Homeless Plan is funded through a $70,000 grant from the Los Angeles County Homeless Initiative, which oversees the voter-approved Measure H sales tax set to generate about $355 million annually to fund homeless services and programs. The City of El Monte is also coordinating with the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments to ensure regional alignment and shared responsibility across jurisdictions on the issue of homelessness.

Learn how you can get involved by emailing housing@elmonteca.gov.

2018 Homeless Count

On any given night in El Monte, more than 500 of our neighbors experience homelessness. Every year, the City partners with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority to conduct the Point-in-Time Count. Information is used to determine how much resources the community receives to fight homelessness.

Thanks to the more than 100 participants in the 2018 Homeless Count on Tuesday, Jan. 23 at Jack Crippen Senior Center!
