The Affordable Housing Guide was put together to provide information on programs such as Section 8 that can be obtained from the County of Los Angeles Community Development Commission (CDC). You must contact the CDC to get on the waiting list. It may take up to five years or more until the CDC contacts you to complete an application. For this reason, it is important that you get on the waiting list as soon as you can.
There is also more information on finding a home or apartment to rent provided by the Los Angeles County Housing Resource Center.
