A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR: Maria Badrakhan (Biography)

Maria Badrakhan
I would like to welcome you to the Housing Management Division web page. Here you will find out how to apply for our conventional public housing and affordable housing programs. You will also be able to see the locations of all of our housing developments throughout Los Angeles County.

Our goal is to provide quality housing and safe environments for low-income families. To achieve this goal, we partner with public and private agencies, and our resident councils. We also provide resident services, community policing, lease enforcement, property maintenance and modernization activities.

We are extremely proud of our families who have continued their education, become employed, and improved their quality of life.

Public Housing Program
The United States Housing Act of 1937 authorized states to pass legislation enabling establishment of local public housing agencies (PHAs) to receive federal assistance. The Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998 (QHWRA) was enacted to reform public housing by:

  • Reduce the concentration of poverty in public housing;
  • Protecting access to housing assistance for the poorest families; 
  • Supporting families making the transition from welfare to work; 
  • Raising performance standards for PHAs; 
  • Transforming the public housing stock through new policies and procedures for demolition and replacement and mixed-finance projects; 
  • Merging and reforming the Section 8 certificate and voucher programs; and 
  • Providing for HUD management reform through deregulation and program consolidation.
Approximately 3,300 local PHAs own and operate public housing developments nationwide, assisting over 1.3 million households. The Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles (HACoLA) manages over 3,237 units of public and other affordable housing properties at 69 sites located throughout Los Angeles County.
