Moderate Rehabilitation Affordable Housing Program

The Moderate Rehabilitation (MR) Program was designed in 1978 to be an expansion of the rental certificate program. The rental certificate program was initially amended to permit moderate levels of rehabilitation to upgrade and preserve the housing stock. The rental certificate program required a minimum expenditure of $1,500 in repairs to meet the program housing quality standards. After the work was completed, owners entered into a 15-year Housing Assistance Contract with the local housing authority. Using this contract, the housing authority helps the owner repay the loan by subsidizing the rents of low-income participants at a higher-than-fair market rate. The contract tied rental subsidies to the building not the participant. Although funding is no longer available for new participants, the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) continues to administer existing contracts under this program.

Below is a list of MR buildings.  The LACDA maintains a waiting list for each building, and recommends that you visit the property before you place your name on an open waiting list.  

All waiting lists are currently CLOSED.  Check back periodically for openings
