The Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department debuted a website Thursday to help prospective renters find “accessible and affordable” living units.
The Affordable and Accessible Housing Registry, found at lahousing.lacity.org, was designed with assistive features to serve people who have disabilities, HCIDLA said.
“We’re excited to reach this point in integrating the Accessible Housing Program into our housing production and rehabilitation work, and to see the site be useful in helping Angelenos, especially those who seek apartments with mobility or enhanced communications features, find affordable housing,” said Ann Sewill, the general manager of HCIDLA.
HCIDLA said it is providing informational fliers to help people navigate the AAHR.
The website allows users to search for affordable and accessible units in city of Los Angeles listings, start applications online for new properties and apply to be placed on waiting lists at affordable housing properties and accessible units.
It will send notifications to users of added rental housing property or when wait lists reopen for applications.
The website was developed in partnership with the Independent Living Center of Southern California, the Fair Housing Council of the San Fernando Valley, and the Communities Actively Living Independent and Free, HCIDLA said.
