West Hollywood is committed to providing housing opportunities, and linking residents to information and resources they need to keep their housing and remain in the community. As a framework, the City sets its housing policies and programs every eight years following California's Housing Planning Cycle. The current State Housing Planning Cycle is from 2013 - 2021.


 Community Conversations on Housing

You are Invited! February will feature two Community Conversations on Housing, one for the west side and one for the east side of the city. The meetings will provide an opportunity for community members to meet with City staff and share ideas. Since 2012, the City has been hosting annual “Community Conversations on Housing” as a way to engage with residents, renters, property owners, and others, about City housing policies and programs.

Housing Policies and Programs

The City's adopted Housing Element includes policies and programs for meeting the community's housing needs.

Inclusionary Housing

New housing projects are required to include 20% of units as affordable to income qualifying households, or in certain instances an in-lieu fee may be paid. 

 Affordable Housing

The City partners with non-profit housing developers, providing low interest loans for the development of affordable housing.

 

Housing Survey

We are always collecting information on housing needs in the community. Please take our housing survey. Results are confidential and help inform the design and implementation of the City's housing programs.
