Los Angeles Housing Partnership (“LAHP”) is a non‐profit public benefit corporation established in 1989 to expand, ensure the long‐term affordability of, and preserve the supply of decent affordable housing in the City and County of Los Angeles for low income households and the homeless. LAHP’s primary activities include the new construction, major rehabilitation, historic preservation, and mixed-use development of affordable rental housing. LAHP is also an approved distributing agency of the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank and manages two Foodbank distribution programs in Hollywood and MacArthur Park that serve over 9,000 hungry individuals and families every year.

LAHP owns and operates over 1200 multi‐family units in Los Angeles County with rents affordable to a broad mixture of households, ranging from moderate income families to homeless veterans. LAHP’s sustainable building methods and daily operations directly benefit its residents and the surrounding community.

LAHP has demonstrated that it is “best in the class” within the affordable housing industry due to its early adoption and promotion of sustainable green designs and living environments. From pursuing LEED® certification of its housing projects to committing to smart growth and infill development, LAHP is leading the way with its sustainability efforts. Beyond its own housing developments, LAHP coordinates with the Heart of Los Angeles Youth Center (HOLA) to run a youth recycling program as well as a healthy cooking class. Building sustainable, affordable housing, while simultaneously promoting community-wide sustainability, is one of LAHP’s highest priorities.

LAHP was featured in a video at LA Business Council's 2011 Annual Sustainability Summit.  To view the video click here.
