Overview

The City of Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) is firmly committed to ensuring that people with disabilities have physical and programmatic access to affordable housing developed with assistance from the City and/or the former Community Redevelopment Agency/Los Angeles. Through HCIDLA's Accessible Housing Program (AcHP), the City promotes, monitors and enforces equal opportunities for people with disabilities to rent, use, and enjoy this housing.

The AcHP covers existing and all newly constructed affordable housing. These developments are referred to as Covered Housing Developments. In addition to physical accessibility, the City requires these developments to adopt standardized rental housing policies consistent with the federal and state fair housing laws and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Physical accessibility includes having the required number of units with specific features for persons with mobility disabilities and persons with hearing/vision disabilities, and having accessible pathways and common areas.
