The Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) is responsible for the administrative duties associated with the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) received by Los Angeles County from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The agency prepares and files the necessary applications and reports with HUD to receive ESG funds. These funds then pass through the LACDA to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA). LAHSA plans the continuum of care for homeless services in the County and City, part of which includes distributing the County’s ESG funding to non-profit agencies operating shelter programs. LAHSA works to coordinate homeless service funds throughout the County and link such funds to development activities. For more information about LAHSA, please visit www.lahsa.org.
