Mover and Shaker event with Tunua Thrash-Ntuk, Executive Director, Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC)
We Gave LA 1.2 Billion Dollars to Solve the Homeless Crisis. Then What Happened?
In 2016, the voters of Los Angeles overwhelmingly approved taxing themselves to the tune of $1.2 billion to fund construction of homes for the homeless. Where did all that money go? The good news is that when we approved Prop HHH, we also established a Public Oversight Committee. On Wednesday, January 23, ULI is pleased to host a Mover and Shaker Event featuring the Vice-Chair of the Oversight Committee, LISC CEO, Tunua Thrash-Ntuk. We look forward to a thorough update on the Prop HHH implementation process from a key community leader at the heart of that effort.
Of course, Tunua Thrash-Ntuk did not arrive at the Prop HHH Oversight Committee by happenstance. Her day job as Chief Executive Officer of LA’s Local Initiative Services Corporation (LISC) is work aplenty, thank you very much. Over the course of more than 30 years in Los Angeles, LISC itself has invested hundreds of million dollars and developed thousands of affordable housing units, and now enters its fourth year under Ms. Thrash-Ntuk’s leadership. From her unique vantage point, Ms. Thrash-Ntuk has a much broader perspective on LA’s challenges related not just to homelessness, but to the broader question of affordability for all Angelenos. She brings to the table not just her real estate experience at LISC and the West Angeles Community Development Corporation before that, but also her Berkeley BA and her MIT Masters in City Planning. Few are better positioned than she to offer perspectives on the critical issues of homelessness and affordability for our entire community.
ULI is pleased to offer this special opportunity for an intimate conversation with Thnua Thrash-Ntuk. She will open the program with her view on Prop. HHH in particular and the broader economic challenges we face. Following Ms. Thrash-Ntuk’s remarks, we will open the floor to an intimate question and answer session with this native Angeleno who is shaping the future of our metropolitan area.
