Los Angeles City Council members are expected Tuesday to announce a $100 million commitment toward combating homelessness, with the panel also expected to declare an emergency on this issue.

Members of the City Council are scheduled to gather outside City Hall on Tuesday morning to discuss details of the plan, but a statement from Council President Herb Wesson’s office states the funding will likely go first toward permanent supportive housing and shelter programs.

The announcement is expected to “complement” Mayor Eric Garcetti’s plan to combat homelessness, which he has said will be released soon, according to the statement.
