Subsidized Housing

January 02, 1994

The Times is to be commended for its editorial "There Is Room at the Inn, Alas" (Dec. 21). It is a tragedy that general relief clients have seen their checks reduced from $341 to $293 and then to the current $212 over the past year.

As you mention, "That is not enough to rent a room, unless the recipient is lucky enough to get one of the few (hotel rooms) subsidized by the Community Redevelopment Agency." Luckily we just reopened the La Jolla Hotel, which was rehabilitated with agency funds. We now have 49 newly renovated rooms for rent to general relief clients for $180 per month.
