The Los Angeles homeless population is on track to hit its lowest point since the recession, according to a new report from the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise.
That’s thanks to a slew of steps being taken to help ease the city’s housing crisis.
The new report found that just over half of Los Angles homeless population has been placed into temporary housing.
This is the second time this year that the homeless population in Los Angeles has hit a low, following the previous record low of 43% in September.
The Center for Neighbors’ report, which surveyed about 700 people on the streets of Los Angelos and the surrounding neighborhoods, found that 57% of homeless people have experienced homelessness, compared to 44% of the population in the city as a whole.
Nearly 70% of people living on the street are Latino.
The study also found that, while homelessness is a major problem in Los Anglos, it is also prevalent in the South, which has the highest percentage of homeless residents.
Los Angeles’ population is almost 70% Hispanic, the Center found.
“Our findings indicate that we are at a tipping point in the homelessness crisis,” said Jennifer O’Connell, senior program director for the Center.
“This report makes clear that it’s time to act.”
The report found Los Angeles is seeing the most dramatic increase in homelessness of any city in the country.
While Los Angeles had the highest rate of homeless adults living on streets in May, the number of homeless families living on street in June and July was lower than any other month since 2008.
The city’s homeless population also dropped by 5% to a record low.
More: More than 8,500 people are homeless in Los Angelas, the report found.
Los Angos population is now at its lowest level since the financial crisis, the study found.
In August, the city recorded a total of just under 5,000 people living in temporary housing, according the Center’s data.
This was the third straight month the report shows that Los Angeles lost population, according it.
In July, Los Angeles registered just under 4,000 homeless residents, and in August it was down to about 1,800.
The number of people on temporary housing dropped 6% to 1,700.
