Affordable Housing Partnership for Artists
May 2014: Updated with new affordable housing information!
The Affordable Housing Partnership for Artists seeks to provide artists and creative professionals with the information and tools they need to access affordable housing, allowing them a stable platform from which to thrive and participate actively in their community. The partnership will begin by focusing on immediate affordable housing opportunities in LA’s Arts District and Downtown, creating a replicable strategy for other LA neighborhoods and beyond. This website will post notifications of upcoming affordable housing opportunities, provide descriptions of eligibility criteria and application processes, and list the schedule of information sessions and workshops that will help you fully prepare yourself. Please check the website regularly.
