Burbank Vice Mayor Nikki Perez has been appointed as the chair of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Regional Housing Trust, the city announced this week.

The trust provides funding for housing initiatives for families with extremely low to moderate incomes and also homeless individuals, according to the city’s announcement. The BGPRHT was established under state legislation authored by Sen. Anthony Portantino in 2022 to address housing insecurity within the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena region by providing sustainable and supportive housing for the area’s most vulnerable residents.

“I’m honored to be elected Chair of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Housing Trust by my colleagues, and I look forward to the opportunity to serve our city and region,” Perez said in a statement. “Our residents have made it clear that they want decisive action on the housing crisis. The $3.45 million grant we secured for the development of the Homeless Solutions Center in Burbank, is the first step in providing services that meet the needs of our unhoused population and a shining example of how through combining our resources we can making meaningful change and deliver results for our community.”

At a meeting in May, the BGPRHT Board of Directors approved the $3.45 million in grant funding to develop a multipurpose facility to address homelessness and connect people with services.

“This milestone award supports the City of Burbank’s Five-year Homelessness Plan and fills a critical gap for interim and transitional housing,” officials said.
