 Virtual Tenants' Clinic hosted by Councilmember Koretz

The City of Los Angeles has tenant protections in place to help prevent the displacement of its residents that are renters. To assist tenants to collaborate with their landlords, HCIDLA is providing a fact sheet and a sample notification form to assist in notifying your landlord of delays in paying your rent during this emergency order period.

The COVID-19 Eviction Protections Fact Sheet can also assist landlords to provide such notice to all tenants as required by Ordinance No. 186585. Click here to view the COVID-19 Eviction Protection Fact Sheet

Westside Mobility Study

The Westside Cities Council of Governments (WSCCOG), is embarking on an update to the 2003 Westside Mobility Study. The update to the 2003 study will identify inter-jurisdictional investment priorities that address issues for all transportation modes, improve access to the Westside for disadvantaged communities, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and promote social equity. 

The current phase of the study seeks to determine where and what type of multi-modal transportation investments would be most appropriate in the Westside Cities region.
