Billions Allotted for Homeless Going Unspent

California has more than 134,000 homeless people living in the streets without access to the billions in government spending allotted for them. 

In 2016 the state approved a huge spending bill for the homeless, a $2 billion loan for supplement housing funds. In the same year, $35 million was set aside for rental assistance and emergency shelters. Even last year, a housing legislation package included more than $100 million. The issue is that the money keeps getting tied up in court, or delayed, or squandered. 

The state expects to pay more than $700 million on the homeless crisis.
