The L.A. Board of Supervisors is slated to vote Tuesday on a pilot program that would grant homeowners up to a $75,000 subsidy to build a second dwelling on their property to house the homeless.

Those with existing dwellings could qualify for up to $50,000 to remodel the structures and bring them up to legal standards, the Pasadena Star News reported.

The program was first introduced last year as part of L.A. County’s set of 47 strategies to solve homelessness.

Connie Chung, supervising regional planner, said details of who would be housed and the selection process are still under discussion. 

The program is expected to be active within 18 months if approved, she said.

A Zillow study showed L.A. County’s homeless population topped 61,000 in January – higher than the 58,000 reported by local authorities the same month. [PSN] — Subrina Hudson
