Explore the LA County CEO's Proposed 2018-2019 Budget

On April 9, LA County CEO Sachi Hamai presented the LA County Board of Supervisors with a proposed $30.8 billion budget for Fiscal Year 2018-2019. The budget's mission is to "improve the quality of life for all County residents, particularly those struggling on the margins of society," according to Hamai.  

According to Hamai's office, the budget:

"- Ramps up the fight against homelessness through Measure H investments that already have helped place more than 3,000 homeless families and individuals in permanent housing.

- Enhances the lives of children and families through funding commitments and innovations in foster care, youth jobs and expanded recreational opportunities, including the popular Parks After Dark Program.

- Expands access to medical and mental health services, including substance abuse treatment and the hiring of hospital-care companions for patients who need observation in medical-surgical areas of County medical centers.

- Promotes justice reform through diversion and innovation, including allocations for supportive housing and intensive case management services and other programs to reduce recidivism."
