Homeless Incentive Program (HIP)

More than 850 people have been housed since the launch
of the County's landlord incentive programs.


The Housing Authority's Homeless Incentive Program (HIP) offers monetary incentives to encourage landlords to rent their available units to HACoLA's homeless Section 8 voucher holders. Funding for the program comes as part of the Homeless Prevention Initiative, a collaborative effort between multiple County agencies supported by funding from Los Angeles County Measure H. Please explore the different components of HIP. HACoLA executed Interagency agreements with the following cities to operate a HIP program: City of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
