The LACDA grants funding to community-based organizations and County Departments to provide specific activities to eligible residents. If you and your organization are located in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County, you may be eligible for CDBG funding. An unincorporated area is any community not located within a city. Cities with populations under 50,000 can also participate with the County in receiving CDBG Program funds.

Non-Profit Organizations
One of the major players in the Urban County’s cooperative structure for housing and community development. The LACDA contracts directly with non-profit community-based organizations and other public agencies to provide public services to Urban County residents.

County Agencies
The LACDA coordinates with other County Departments to carry out the County’s housing and community development strategies.

Participating Cities
Approximately 50% of the Urban County’s annual allocation goes to fund cities' community and economic development activities. Participating cities keep local control by designing and operating CDBG projects based on local needs.
