Transforming one neighborhood at a time

Stretching from San Pedro to San Fernando Valley and from Mar Vista to East Los Angeles, the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) manages 14 large public housing locations (consisting of more than 6,500 units) throughout Los Angeles. The Public Housing Program provides affordable housing to more than 6,500 families with very low income in Los Angeles. A resident's rent in the public housing program is subsidized by the federal government. Applicants to the public housing program must be income eligible and residents must adhere to program rules.

Established in 1938, HACLA is also responsible for 423 additional units of mixed-finance public housing in six other locations that are owned and/or operated by private management companies with their own waiting list and overseen by our Asset Management Department. A resident's rent in the public housing program is usually calculated at 30% of the household’s adjusted monthly income. Applicants to the public housing program must be income eligible and residents must adhere to program rules.
