What is LACAHSA?
The L.A. County Affordable Housing Solutions Agency was created to make housing more affordable, help people stay in their homes, and increase housing options for people experiencing homelessness. It is a regional organization focused on all of L.A. County and by having leaders from across the county, and a single CEO, it is accountable enough to cut through red tape so we can do more than ever before.
LACAHSA is a new organization that was created by state legislation sponsored by community organizations and experts, approved by the CA State Legislature and signed by Governor Gavin Newsom.
What Comes Next?
LACAHSA is brand new, so the first order of business is for the board to get input from the public, create a shared vision for a very different L.A. County, and start to turn planning into action. There’s a lot LACAHSA could do, like offer emergency rent assistance and build enough affordable homes to meet our regional need.
We invite you to participate as we plan for the near future. You can find upcoming board agendas on this site and watch along at home.
Meet the Board
The LACAHSA board is made up of committed leaders from communities across L.A. County who are focused on working together to keep the affordable homes we have and create more.
Request for Proposals
LACAHSA is to be led by a Chief Executive Officer (CEO), who will be tasked with building the strategic vision and operational framework for LACAHSA. While LACAHSA is building up its staff, there is a need for ongoing support regarding LACAHSA policy; therefore, LACAHSA is looking to hire and currently soliciting proposals from Policy Consultants.
Proposals will be accepted during a three week period from Wednesday September 27, 2023 to Wednesday, October 18, 2023.
All respondents making proposals will be notified in or before October 2023 whether they will be invited for an interview and may also receive follow-up questions or requests for supplementary materials at that time.
The interview and final selection will be performed by the LACAHSA Ad-Hoc Executive Committee.
