Property owners are the key in the County’s fight to end homelessness.

In an effort to increase the number of property owners participating in the County’s rental assistance programs, the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) has launched a new business model that provides an enhanced customer service experience for property owners.

Through a collaborative effort between the LACDA and Los Angeles County, Open Doors provides property owners with monetary and non-monetary assurances who rent their available units to subsidized families.

Security Deposit Assistance

Damage Mitigation

Open Doors may provide reimbursement for repairs due to physical damages to a unit subsidized by the LACDA, caused by a current housing program participant family during their occupancy. The LACDA will pay for qualified damage costs beyond the security deposit, but not to exceed $2,000.
