Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA)
Created in 1982 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) is the combination of the Housing Authority, the Community Development Department (CDC/HACoLA), and the Redevelopment Agency.
With an annual budget of $648 million and a total staff size of almost 600, LACDA is an independent agency serving the cities in Los Angeles County that do not have their own housing agency. LACDA administers Section 8, HUD grant funding, in addition to owning and managing ~3,000 units of public housing at 63 sites throughout Los Angeles County. LACDA is a key player in Los Angeles County’s 2015 Homeless Initiative, which includes 51 strategies aimed to attack the root causes of homelessness.
