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.


Get involved, stay informed and spread the word on how to fight homelessness together.
