The City of Los Angeles is launching the 2021-2029 Update to the Housing Element, a state-mandated Element of the General Plan. A dedicated webpage for the update to the Housing Element will be available in early 2020. In the meantime, you can find information on the current Housing Element, sign up for email notifications about the update, and learn more about upcoming opportunities to get involved.
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.
