Los Angeles County’s diverse neighborhoods and cities are all part of a a rich and unique cultural fabric we call home. However, for far too many in these unusual times, having a place to call home may be seriously at risk. LA’s increasingly unaffordable housing market, paired with the huge COVID-19 related economic downturn, have created a perfect storm for struggling renters.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Board has adopted a series of measures to make sure that individuals could be “Safer At Home,” including an eviction moratorium and Project Roomkey, which prevented mass evictions and housed high-risk people experiencing homelessness, respectively. We have leveraged community partnerships to feed the hungry through dozens of food drives and provided financial help through Rent Relief.
Now, through Stay Housed LA, LA County is empowering renters and keeping people housed by connecting them with critical legal assistance.
Stay Housed LA is a partnership between the County of Los Angeles and local community and legal services providers. Together, we provide Los Angeles County residents with information and resources to keep people in their homes. At the Stay Housed LA website, you can find out more about your rights by participating in a virtual tenant workshop, get the legal assistance you need, and sign up for updates to stay keyed into this unique and evolving housing climate.
