Utah League of Cities and Towns

Making Life BETTER

2018 Homelessness Legislation

The Utah State Legislature considered two bills that would have impacted municipal budgets to address the homelessness crisis. ULCT successfully lobbied to remove cities from HB 462 which would have charged cities to pay for the O&M costs of homeless resource centers through a formula based on each city’s stock of affordable housing. Meanwhile, SB 235 passed which withholds 1.8% of the 50% population component of the local option sales tax. In FY 2017, the local option sales tax generated approximately $595 million and the withholding will be approximately $5 million. The $5 million will go into a mitigation fund. The five cities that house homeless resource centers can apply for reimbursements for public safety expenditures related to the impact of the homeless resource centers in their communities. We successfully lobbied for the committee membership to include five mayors and to enhance the transparency of the fund.

ULCT requested this data from the State Tax Commission for your planning purposes.
