From LA-Más: We are excited to share that the Backyard Homes Project – an affordable accessory dwelling unit (ADU) pilot program has launched. LA-Más and our collective of non-profit partners – Genesis LA, Self-Help Federal Credit Union, Restore Neighborhoods LA (RNLA), LA Family Housing, St. Joseph Center, and Housing Rights Center – are pleased to announce the launch of LA’s newest incentive program for LA homeowners!
This incentive program offers homeowners a “one-stop-shop” for financing, designing, permitting, and constructing a new Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) in the City of Los Angeles. We aspire to have ADUs be remarkably designed, affordably constructed, and creatively financed. The process of being a Section 8 landlord will be easy and supported.
Homeowners are eligible to apply if they meet the following requirements:
- Agree to house a Section 8 voucher holder in their new ADU for a minimum of 5 years
- Own a property in a single-family residential area located within the City of LA
Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2018.
