The LACDA grants funding to community-based organizations and County Departments to provide specific activities to eligible residents. If you and your organization are located in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County, you may be eligible for CDBG funding. An unincorporated area is any community not located within a city. Cities with populations under 50,000 can also participate with the County in receiving CDBG Program funds.
One of the major players in the Urban County’s cooperative structure for housing and community development. The LACDA contracts directly with non-profit community-based organizations and other public agencies to provide public services to Urban County residents.
The LACDA coordinates with other County Departments to carry out the County’s housing and community development strategies.
Approximately 50% of the Urban County’s annual allocation goes to fund cities' community and economic development activities. Participating cities keep local control by designing and operating CDBG projects based on local needs.
The Consolidated Plan includes a needs assessment and five-year strategy for the expenditure of CDBG, HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program, and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), formally known, and referred to as, Emergency Shelter Grant in this planning document, funding for the Los Angeles Urban County.
2018-2023 Consolidated Plan
The Los Angeles Urban County One-Year Action Plan contains the County’s strategy to carry out housing and community development activities funded by Federal formula grants received in the Program Year from HUD. These funds are from the CDBG, HOME, and ESG Programs.
The CAPER summarizes Los Angeles County's (County) annual performance for the HUD formula grant programs: CDBG, HOME, and ESG. The LACDA administers these grants for the County. The CAPER report contains two volumes.
Volume I provides a narrative description of CDBG, HOME, and ESG Programs.
Volume II consists of activity reports, including summaries of accomplishments for all funded activities.
FINAL ANALYSIS OF IMPEDIMENTS TO FAIR HOUSING CHOICE (AI)
The AI goals will be included in the final 2018-2023 Consolidated Plan and subsequent Annual Action Plans as well as the LACDA 2018-2023 Agency Plan and subsequent Annual Agency Plans.

OTHER EFFORTS ADDRESSING POTENTIAL CONTRIBUTING FACTORS
The LACDA has developed a matrix in the link below, which will be updated each year within the Annual Action Plan, to show how the agency may become involved in other agency plans or programs to address various potential impediments/contributing factors identified by stakeholders during the development of the Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH)/Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice. It also indicates other efforts that may be addressing the potential impediments. This matrix is a work in-progress and will be updated annually.
The LACDA developed a joint AFH which is required by HUD as a condition of receiving Federal funding to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing (AFFH) within the jurisdiction.
After completing and submitting the AFH in October, 2017, HUD released a Notice on January 5, 2018, which notified program participants that HUD will discontinue the review of AFHs currently under review. Starting at this date, consolidated plan program participants must continue to comply with existing, ongoing obligations to affirmatively further fair housing. Until a consolidated plan program participant is required to submit an AFH, it will continue to provide the AFFH Consolidated plan certification in accordance with the requirements that existed prior to August 17, 2015.
HUD AFFH Notice
As the LACDA had already submitted the AFH for review, but had not yet been accepted by HUD, the LACDA is meeting AFFH requirements through the development of an AI, utilizing the information from the AFH, including the assessment, contributing factors, and goals. In addition, the final AI includes public comments received on the draft AFH as well as any responses to those comments.
The Community Profile serves as a resource tool to guide the LACDA's community development activities and to prioritize the use of CDBG and other funds within the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. The Community Profile was first developed in 1987 and then revised in 1997 and 2004. The 2016 Community Profile updates the 2004 document using 2010 Census data and 2014 American Community Survey five-year estimates as well as new field assignments to identify target areas, referred to as "Strategy Areas," which are eligible for CDBG funding.
