HACLA Cares Incentive Program

Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles

Property Owners can maximize on their returns by partnering with The Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8). Thanks to funding through the CARES Act, HACLA has launched a new incentive program for Property Owners called “HACLA Cares.” While recognizing the added difficulties of making rental units available for HCV families during stay-at-home orders and social distancing practices, the new program aims to increase Owner’s participation in the HCV Program. It is expected the funds should be expended by the end of April.

Signing Bonus

$2500 paid directly to property owners upon successful execution of new HAP contract beginning on or after 7/1/2020.

Security Deposit

Security deposit assistance of up to two times the rental amount (contingent on funding availability).

Here’s how the Program Works:

Step 1: Landlords find Housing Choice Voucher Program participants interested in their unit.

Step 2: RFTA is submitted to HCVP participants Eligibility Interviewer and processed (if needed security deposit request is submitted), inspection of unit occurs, rent offer is made and accepted, lease and HAP Contract are signed.

Step 3: HACLA staff will reach out to verify information for upcoming signing bonus payment (security deposit if applicable).

Step 4: Funds are paid to the same account as Housing Authority Payments.
