Affordable Housing Resources
Posted here are The Actors Fund’s best resources for affordable housing in the Los Angeles area. In contrast to New York, Los Angeles does not have Mitchell Lama or 80/20 programs for subsidized housing. However, there are some subsidized and affordable opportunities that do exist in LA. In addition to the resources below, which offer subsidized and affordable listings, our Bulletin Board is where we will be posting specific housing opportunities as we become aware of them. If you are looking for affordable housing, we suggest you often check the websites below, as well as the Bulletin Board, as they are updated frequently.
