Section 8 Housing Assistance

Section 8 programs in Lakewood are administered by the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA).

The program assists eligible families to afford safe, decent, high-quality rental housing. 

How does Section 8 work?

Participants rent housing from private landlords and pay a portion of their income towards rent.

The LACDA pays the difference in the rent amount directly to the owner.

Owners, participants and the Housing Authority share in making this three-way partnership a success.
