Program 11: Countywide Affordable Rental Housing Development

This program provides financial and technical assistance to acquire sites, develop affordable rental housing, and acquire and rehabilitate affordable rental housing within specific geographic areas. The funds are made available as low-interest long term loans.

Funds for the program are administered through a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) issued by the Community Development Commission and/or the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles. A NOFA issuance depends on funding availability. Funding allocations are recommended based on a competitive process between applicants. As an incentive, applications for funds in the unincorporated areas are awarded additional points and are eligible for larger allocations, regardless of the funding source.

All units developed utilizing these resources are made available to households earning less than 50% of the Area Median Income.
