A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: SEAN ROGAN (Biography)

Welcome to the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles (HACoLA).

Our goal is to build better lives and better neighborhoods for residents of the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County and in the various cities that participate in the two programs that HACoLA offers, the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program, and the Public Housing Program. HACoLA’s Section 8 and Public Housing Programs are both recognized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as high performing programs, designations that HACoLA works tirelessly to maintain.

HACoLA’s Assisted Housing Division administers approximately 23,300 Section 8 Vouchers, making us the second largest housing authority in Southern California. Through Section 8, participants rent housing from the approximately 10,000 private landlords who partner with HACoLA. Participants pay a portion of their income towards rent. HACoLA subsidizes the difference in monthly payments directly to the owner. Owners, participants, and HACoLA, share in making this three-way-partnership a success.

The Housing Management Division is responsible for public and affordable housing located throughout Los Angeles County. HACoLA owns or operates 3,336 housing units located on 70 sites. HACoLA’s three major public housing sites are: Carmelitos, in North Long Beach (713 units); Nueva Maravilla, in unincorporated East Los Angeles (504 units); and Harbor Hills, in the City of Lomita (301 units). The remaining senior and family housing units are located throughout the County in all five Los Angeles County Supervisorial Districts.

HACoLA is proud to offer residents and participants several programs that enhance their quality of life. For example, The Growing Experience provides opportunities for public housing residents to receive classroom training and certification in horticulture along with various life skills and leadership workshops. The crops grown at The Growing Experience are harvested and sold at a very low price to residents and others in the community who may otherwise not be able to afford fresh locally-grown produce. Additionally, the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program is offered to provide necessary support services for Section 8 and public housing families who have made a commitment to work towards economic self-sufficiency. Families graduate from the program once they have been free of all government assistance for 12 months.

Our website offers renters user-friendly tools such as an online Waiting List , which allows participants to update or check the status of their rental assistance application, and Section 8 Owner and Tenant Portals where real-time account information such as contract status, reexamination, and inspection results can be easily accessed.

I hope that you find our website to be useful. If you would like additional information about HACoLA or any of our programs, I invite you to use the Public Inquiry Portal which allows you to electronically submit questions, comments, or suggestions.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website!
