On May 12, 2021, the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) accepted 1,964 Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHVs), as part of an allocation of 70,000 vouchers issued to public housing authorities nationwide, by the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD). The EHVs were allocated as a part of the American Rescue Plan Act, with the intent of assisting individuals and families most in need and for whom providing rental assistance will prevent the family’s homelessness
or having high risk of housing instability.
In order to help expand the opportunities and incentives for landlords within the Los Angeles County region, the following Public Housing Agencies have agreed to allow EHV participants to search for rental units in each other’s jurisdictions: the LACDA, Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, and the Cities of Norwalk, Pasadena, Redondo Beach, and Glendale.
