Homeless Incentive Program (HIP)

The Los Angeles County Development Authority's (LACDA) Homeless Incentive Program (HIP) offers monetary incentives to encourage landlords to rent their available units to LACDA's homeless Section 8 voucher holders. Funding for the program comes as part of the Homeless Prevention Initiative, a collaborative effort between multiple County agencies supported by funding from Los Angeles County Measure H. Owners with available units in the Cities of Los Angeles, Pasadena, Inglewood, Baldwin Park, Norwalk, Burbank, Redondo Beach, Long Beach, Culver City, Kern County, and LACDA’s regular jurisdictions may also participate in this program.
