BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Income Property Association of Kern released its impact report for the 2019 California Landlords' Summit on Homelessness.
This report details how the event started, how it works and its final results.
IPAK partnered with the Housing Authority of the County of Kern to track the number of people housed in units made available because of CLSH.
At last year's lummit, landlords pledged 84 rental housing units towards ending homelessness in Kern County.
By the end of the year, 94 people were housed as a result of CLSH.
Of those 41 were placed in market rate units and 53 were in subsidized Affordable Housing units.
This resulted in an estimated $2,661,892 in savings for public services in Kern County.
Landlord engagement has been a crucial element in COVID-19 response by the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness.
