Matt on Homelessness

Matt’s Results for San Francisco:
  • Led the effort to house over 2,400 homeless in Shelter-In-Place (SIP) hotel rooms during the pandemic.
  • Invested over $1 billion in supportive housing, housing vouchers, and housing for people experiencing homelessness as Budget and Finance Chair. 
  • Guaranteed mental health care for every San Franciscan with Mental Health SF co-authored with Supervisor Ronen, so that those with a mental illness or substance use disorder can get treatment and care.
  • Advocated for navigation centers in all 11 supervisorial districts, opened a new navigation center on the Embarcadero and multiple other new shelters, treatment facilities and navigation centers in his district.
  • Authored a law and secured funding to expand 24-hour bathrooms from zero in 2017 to over 25 locations, all across the city, because everyone deserves the dignity of a private, clean, safe place to go.
Matt’s Commitments in the Assembly:
  • Address the root causes of homelessness by investing in mental health services, transitional housing, and wrap-around services such as job training and health care.
  • Empower the State of California to hold other cities and counties accountable for creating more housing and services for the homeless, so the responsibility doesn’t fall on San Francisco alone.
  • Pass a wealth tax on billionaires to fund investments in supportive housing and navigation centers.
  • Establish a state system of rapid rehousing vouchers and emergency rental assistance to keep people housed and off the streets.
  • Ensure every tenant has the right to an attorney in an eviction proceeding.
  • Invest additional funds to purchase hotels to rapidly provide new housing for homeless residents without sky-high building costs.
