Throughout the state, that cost would exceed $6 billion. The boost in rent prices across California is making it even tougher for those suffering from homelessness to find affordable housing. From housing prices to government requirements and added labor costs, programs that are attempting to construct transitional housing are having a difficult time getting the necessary funding.
