Today at 2:00 p.m., Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will unveil a 5-year, $5 billion plan to double affordable housing units built in the city and will be announcing a $700 million housing investment from the Enterprise Community Partners. The plan called Housing That Works will "promote mixed-income housing, invest in new neighborhoods along public transit corridors, provide relief to families facing foreclosure and shift LA’s strategy from managing homelessness to moving people out of it."
