Measure J

On November 3, 2020, the voters of Los Angeles County approved Measure J which dedicated no less than ten percent of the County’s locally generated unrestricted funding to address the disproportionate impact of racial injustice through community investments such youth development, job training, small business development, supportive housing services and alternatives to incarceration.

On November 10, 2020, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors adopted the Measure J Revenue Allocation Process motion and directed the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to establish a 17-member Measure J Reimagine LA Advisory Committee (Committee) comprised of representatives from County Departments (5), Community-Based/Advocacy organizations appointed by the members of the Board (5), Labor Representatives (2) and Individuals with lived experiences appointed by the 5 Board appointees and the 5 Department representatives (5).

The Committee has been charged with advising the CEO on developing and implementing an inclusive and transparent Measure J process to develop and present spending recommendations to the CEO. Along with the directors of the Alternatives to Incarceration (ATI) and Anti-Racism Diversity and Inclusion (ARDI) Initiatives, the work of the Committee will include but will not be limited to:

  • Selecting the five Committee members with lived experience
  • Developing a spending plan recommendation process
  • Creating a spending plan development process annually for future Measure J funding cycles
  • Coordinating with County departments to develop detailed budget requests in line with the identified community engagement priorities and Measure J goals

Individuals with lived experience interested in being a member of the committee may access the application by using this link. Applications will be accepted until Friday December 4, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. For additional information, please email ati@lacounty.gov.
