Governor Newsom’s plan to reduce homelessness includes leasing 286 state-owned properties across California to local governments for shelters or other homeless services.

The spaces include:

  • Caltrans parking lots
  • State hospitals and armories, among other properties

All can be rented out for $1 a month plus, a $5,000 annual fee. Some local leaders are already talking about plans for the sites.
