The City of West Hollywood leads the way in tenants rights.

Have you ever asked where all the affordable housing West Hollywood is supposed to have built stands?

Have you ever wondered how the city and developers fund affordable housing inside market rate buildings?

How about how to get onto the city’s inclusionary housing program, or opportunities’ through West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (WHCHC)  or HOPWA (Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS)?

If yes to any or all of these questions, go here to the now-completed West Hollywood City Council Chambers underneath the County Public Library on Wednesday 23, March 2014 at 2:00 pm.

One of the buildings that the WHCH has built in partnership with other agencies. This one is on Hayworth.

No other city in California identifies so closely with housing, especially tenant rights. It remains a founding principle of the city.

In tonight’s city council agenda’s consent calendar passing containing this item, two specialists from the City of West Hollywood, Corri Planck and Corey Roskin, will moderate presentations on the variety of affordable housing options in West Hollywood for a joint session of the city’s Disabilities Advisory Board and the Senior Advisory Board.

It will be carried live on television, so people unable to schlep to the meeting (which does not as yet seem to be scheduled) can see it. It will be archived, as well.

These presentations are designed to provide information about the available housing options, how they are funded and designated for specific populations and how this housing is accessed by community members.
