Affordable Housing Incentive Program Guidelines Announced
The Los Angeles Department of Planning released guidelines for the new TOC Affordable Housing Incentive Program. The program was part of Measure JJJ, which was approved by voters last November. The program will grant exemptions from certain code restrictions in exchange for on-site affordable housing in transit-adjacent sites.

Incentive areas are identified as those within a one-half mile radius surrounding major transit stops and a development must meet certain criteria to receive the incentives.
