The City of Los Angeles has launched the 2021-2029 Update to the Housing Element. Visit the update webpage to learn more about the process, sign up for email updates, and share your feedback. The 2013-2021 Housing Element, below, is active until the 2021-2029 update is adopted (with a target adoption date of October 2021).
The Housing Element is one of the nine state-mandated elements of the General Plan. The Housing Element of the General Plan identifies the City’s housing conditions and needs, establishes the goals, objectives, and policies that are the foundation of the City’s housing strategy, and provides an array of programs to create sustainable, mixed-income neighborhoods across the City.
The current Housing Element was adopted in 2013 and is in effect through 2021. PDFs of the Housing Element are available in low resolution and high resolution, and the accordions below present each section of the document.
