Santa Monica City Council Approves Partnership for Affordable Housing Expansion

Hollywood Community Housing Corporation to Spearhead Development of New Units

The Santa Monica City Council has given the green light to a partnership with Hollywood Community Housing Corporation to expand the city’s inventory of affordable and permanent supportive housing.

The proposed developments, subject to final approval by the City Council, are set to encompass around 130 units spread across three city-owned properties located at 1217 Euclid St., 1211-1217 14th St., and 1146 16th St., in alignment with the city’s Housing Element.

Upon completion, these projects aim to cater to individuals and families earning between 30 and 80 percent of the Area Median Income and individuals experiencing homelessness. The initiative to bring these new developments to fruition aligns with the city’s strategic objectives of Addressing Homelessness and fostering Justice, Equity, and diversity.

The Euclid St. location is slated to offer permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless individuals, with The People Concern taking the helm as the lead supportive service provider. The People Concern’s services will encompass mental health services, crisis intervention, therapy, rehabilitation programs, substance abuse services, life skills education, medication management, benefits assistance, and connections to external services as necessary.

Mayor Phil Brock underscored the significance of Santa Monica’s commitment to allocating city-owned properties for affordable housing endeavors, stating, “An important part of Santa Monica’s Housing Element is our commitment to dedicate several city-owned properties to advance much-needed affordable housing production. I am glad to see these projects moving forward as part of our city’s strategic effort to address homelessness and continue to build a community where all have the ability to live and thrive.”

Hollywood Community Housing Corporation was chosen through a competitive bidding process, with selection criteria including experience and other qualifications.

Future steps involve engaging the community to gather input on the design and development plan. A refined proposal, incorporating community feedback, is anticipated to return to the council for final consideration and approval in 2025.
