Several mayors from across the country – including Los Angeles, Phoenix and Mesa – have joined a coalition to find solutions to the lack of affordable housing in their cities. Fourteen mayors and CEOs have joined the Mayors & CEOs for U.S. Housing Investment coalition. Part of their goal is to form public-private partnerships to ensure the federal government continues to fund federal housing and homeless assistance. In Arizona, more than 40,000 people are homeless, according to the 2016 Arizona Department of Economic Security report on homelessness.
