The Los Angeles County Development Authority have extended the deadline to register for elderly family housing sites from June to the end of the year.
Applicants can continue to add their name on up to seven site-based waiting lists from not until Dec 31 at 5 p.m. by registering at lacda.org, or call (626) 586-1845. The County’s section 8 waiting lists remain closed.
An elderly family is a household whose head, co-head, spouse, or sole member is a person who is at least 62 years of age. It may include two or more persons who are at least 62 years of age living together, or one or more persons who are at least 62 years of age living with one or more live-in aides.
Elderly families may choose, based on eligibility, to register for one, or all seven, waiting lists. Applicants will be selected from each waiting list in order of admission preferences, followed by date and time of registration.
The seven site-based waiting lists include the following nine available properties: Carmelitos (Long Beach), Nueva Maravilla and Herbert Avenue (East Los Angeles), Francisquito Villa (La Puente), Whittier Manor (Whittier), West Knoll/Palm (West Hollywood), Marina Manor (Marina Del Rey), Orchard Arms (Valencia), Foothill Villa (La Crescenta), and South Bay Gardens (Los Angeles).
If an applicant is offered a unit from any of the waiting lists that they have registered for, and the unit is not accepted, the applicant’s name will be removed from all selected waiting lists, and they must re-register. Therefore, it is important that applicants only register for locations in which they are willing to reside.
Further, please note that the LACDA prohibits smoking on the grounds, and within housing units, at all public housing developments, except for the South Bay Gardens senior public housing development, which has a designated smoking area within the complex.
The LACDA maintains and manages 3,229 public and affordable units located on 68 sites throughout Los Angeles County. Please visit the LACDA website for more information on their programs, or call (626) 262-4510.
