What is Measure ULA?

A new approach to reduce homelessness and protect low-income seniors

Reduces Homelessness

Drafted by homelessness and housing experts who know what works—not politicians.

Protects Seniors

Provides financial assistance to low-income seniors in danger of becoming homeless.

Only Millionaires and Billionaires Pay

Takes a percentage of windfall profits from real estate sales over $5M to invest back into our communities.

Makes Housing More Affordable

Invests in innovative solutions that will create housing faster and at a lower cost than what has been tried before.

Who supports ULA?

We are homelessness and housing experts — not politicians.

ULA was drafted by homeless service providers, affordable housing nonprofits, labor unions, and renters’ rights groups. It was put on the ballot by 98,171 LA renters, homeowners and small business owners who wanted to see real change. Angelenos agreed, passing the measure in November of 2022. 

Never before in Los Angeles has there been a solution to homelessness that was crafted by experts who know what works and backed by a dedicated, long-term funding source. That’s why ULA will have a real, immediate impact for Los Angeles.

How does ULA work?

ULA taxes real estate that sells for more than $5 million in LA City.

  • This one-time tax will raise an estimated $900 million a year to reduce homelessness, make housing more affordable, and protect low-income seniors from losing their homes.
  • ULA invests in innovative solutions, creating housing faster and at a lower cost than what has been done before.
  • It provides housing for people living on the streets, sends emergency assistance to low-income seniors in danger of becoming homeless, and provides legal aid to renters.
  • ULA is implemented with strong citizen oversight from independent homelessness experts who know what works—not politicians.
