The APA legislation, which is sponsored by Supervisors Rafael Mandelman, Matt Haney, Catherine Stefani, Myrna Melgar, and Gordon Mar was introduced on March 22, 2022.  APA directs the City of San Francisco to:

  • Establish a policy to provide shelter to all who will accept it.
  • Develop an implementation plan that expands the number and range of shelter options including tents, cabins, Navigation Centers, and traditional shelter to accommodate all those willing to accept shelter.

At the press conference for APA, RescueSF co-founder Mark Nagel said, "Street sleeping doesn't make someone safe, sane, or sober.  To end our devastating homelessness crisis, we need to stop managing homelessness like it’s a normal part of urban life, and we need to start treating it like the humanitarian emergency that it is.
