The tab from 2014-2015, as calculated by the UC Irvine researchers who did the analysis,
came out to nearly $300 million. Local municipalities bore about half the burden,

The study, conducted by UCI professors David Snow and Rachel Goldberg, said $42 million
a year in services could be saved by housing chronically homeless people.
