Only beneficiaries will be those who find loop holes to get free $, lazy people who prefer to live in poverty then to have responsibilities & few people who actually needed. I'm $180k yr, no debt, good savs and can't afford a home, yet tons of undeserving ppl getting free $$

This is the same program experiment they tried in Northern California, I think it was in Stockton, and the results were good and indicated it raised their standard of living.

The vast majority of the homeless are mentally ill. What percentage were and what percentage became are debatable but to say the solution to homelessness is homes is naive.

we should all accept that the Mayor and the #LosAngeles metro authorities have performed miserably in terms of infrastructure spending, road repair, cleanliness, and, most significantly, #homelessness. #LA is rapidly degrading into a giant landfill. #FAIL

So, no string include being able to continue to live in a tent and being strung out on drugs?!! Sounds like a really great way to put the city in a bigger budget hole!

Look at this clown giving tax dollars away that don鈥檛 belong to him . Give these people jobs make them clean up the city 40 hours a month for that 1000$ . You keep them productive, they earn it , and the city wins

Who are these 2,000 families and what are the qualifications? I have a feeling this money will go to those Garcetti favors and some of the most deserving of it won't get it.
