First CTI program slated for Los Angeles
The Conrad Hilton Foundation has announced $13 million in grants to support a five-year drive to end chronic homelessness in Los Angeles. The multi-faceted initiative includes funds for a range of new housing and service programs. Included among them is a $330,000 grant to the Downtown Women’s Center to help 80 chronically homeless women effectively transition into permanent housing. This will be the first application of CTI in Los Angeles, a city with one of the largest populations of homeless persons in the United States.
