The Winter Shelter Program is established annually as a program to address the basic shelter and service needs of homeless persons during the period in which Los Angeles usually experiences its most inclement weather. Winter Shelters are activated across the County of Los Angeles and operate 24 hours per day as part of the COVID-19 response and to address community concerns.
This Request for Information (RFI) by LAHSA is a noncompetitive solicitation. This RFI seeks to gather information from property owners, landlords, or community-based organizations (e.g., faith-based organizations) who are interested in the use of their large site(s) as regular winter shelter and/or augmented winter shelter locations during the Winter Shelter Program season (November 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022). These locations will be used as a congregate shelter setting. This RFI will allow LAHSA to gain information regarding potentially available sites and form working partnerships with Winter Shelter providers.
