In 2013, the department was reborn as the Los Angeles Housing Department, or LAHD for short, integrating the operations of the Los Angeles Housing Department and some parts of the Community Development Department. We encourage you to learn about our programs, where our funding comes from and what successes and challenges we have encountered along the way.
Office of the General Manager
This office oversee all matters relating to our General Manager, including managing his/her schedule and speaking engagements.
We provide all budget, systems, and administrative support for the department to ensure our staff can focus on achieving our mission.
We facilitate the financing of housing development projects with our business and community partners.
Community Services and Development
We oversee social services and housing programs that assist low-income, homeless, and special needs populations, and communities in general.
Accessible Housing Program
The Accessible Housing Program (AcHP) ensures that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to rent, use, and enjoy housing that has received financial or other assistance from the City of Los Angeles (City) or the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles (CRA/LA).
Policy, Data and Resilience
Underlying the programs that LAHD operates are staff teams that conduct policy research, apply for new grant resources, develop programs to meet the needs of Angelenos, analyze and map data, measure program performance, conduct strategic planning and more. LAHD staff work to embed community resilience, preparations for disaster recovery and mitigating climate change in all that we do. These work units work across the department as well as with public and private partners to find solutions for the many challenges facing Los Angeles.
Custodian of Records
Our host of online services enables you to pay bills, input data for contracts or check the status of a grant quickly and efficiently from the comfort of your home or office.
What drives us every day is our mission to make a difference in the community and improve quality of life for Angelenos.
The City of Los Angeles and its partners, including the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), work with community partners to provide homeless individuals and families the resources they need to achieve independent, stable and secure housing. As a City department, the Los Angeles Housing Department (LAHD) plays key roles in this effort, which include financing the development of supportive affordable housing for homeless residents using federal, state and local resources such as voter-approved Proposition HHH.
