CALIFORNIA - Governor Gavin Newsom announced a 100-day challenge program to combat homelessness.

The program announced on Thursday, replicates a successful national model and will be done by California cities and counties.

“With a single stroke of your pen, you can make a major, positive impact on homelessness right away," Governor Newsom said. "You can immediately order your Department of Housing and Urban Development to house 50,000 homeless Californians with federal housing vouchers – this, combined with critically important increases in fair market rents, can stably house a significant portion of our street homeless population faster than almost any other action you could possibly take."

Newsom added that 100-day challenges are part of a growing national movement to help end, and prevent, homelessness.

The Governor also sent a letter to President Trump detailing how the federal government can take immediate action to help California fight homelessness.
