Program Focused on Assisting Residents Located in High Need Areas of the County
In an effort to assist renters with limited means affected by the COVID-19 crisis, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has provided $100 million in CARES Act funds to create a COVID-19 Rent Relief program, operated by the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA). The program is set to launch on Monday, August 17, 2020, and will remain open for a two-week period, closing on August 31, 2020. The program’s goal is to assist between 8,000 to over 9,000 households.

COVID-19 Updates for Businesses


Dear Friends,

I want to make you aware of a collection of nine very dangerous bills working their way through the California State Legislature that individually may seem innocuous but are anything but. 
Like the mythological Hydra, a monster with many heads -- cut one head off and it regenerates two more, the same can be said of the piece-mealed package of legislation encompassing the worst parts of last year’s divisive overdevelopment/ gentrification bill, SB 50, authored by Bay Area state Senator Scott Wiener. Opposed by both the City of Los Angeles and the City of San Francisco, SB 50 was ultimately defeated in the legislature. Its passage would have dismembered single-family zoning, allowed 10-unit luxury apartments on ANY block, and apartments several stories (and higher) in single-family neighborhoods.
