Westminster will be doing its bit to help ease the homeless crisis.

According to Andrew Do, First District Supervisor on the Orange County Board of Supervisors, the county has allocated $1,116,400 towards the development of the Della Rosa Supportive Housing Project in that city.

The development will create 49 new units, 23 of which will be available to residents who make less than 50 percent of the medial county income. The other 25 units will be funded by federal Housing and Urban Development Project-Based Housing Choice Vouchers and will be dedicated as permanent supportive housing for the chronically homeless.

In Santa Ana, nearly $9 million in county mental health funds will be dedicated to building and maintaining 57 new units of permanent supportive housing units as part of the Aqua Apartments project.
