Transit Oriented Communities Incentive Program

The Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) Incentive Program encourages the construction of affordable housing near bus and train stations. The new units generated by the TOC incentives provide convenient options for low-income residents, add to the City’s housing stock, and promote alternatives to car travel. 

Measure JJJ, passed by voters in 2016, amended the Los Angeles Municipal Code to create the TOC program, a package of new incentives for building affordable housing near public transit. The ballot initiative also required Los Angeles City Planning to create TOC guidelines for all housing developments within a half-mile radius of a major transit stop.

To qualify for the TOC incentives, developers must file the application and tier verification forms below at the Metro Development Services Center

For more information about the TOC program, contact the Housing Services Unit at dcpphp@lacity.org. Visit the Housing page to learn more about City Planning's work on housing policy.
