Rental Assistance Programs
The Housing Authority of the City of Long Beach (HACLB) administers the City's Rental Housing Assistance Programs. These Assistance Programs are designed to provide financial and technical assistance services to low-income, elderly, and disabled residents of Long Beach so they can live with dignity in decent, safe, and sanitary housing conditions.
Currently HACLB, in partnership with more than 2,500 property owners, assists over 6,300 households that lease units in the City of Long Beach, through these various programs:
Housing Choice Voucher Program (commonly known as Section 8 Rental Assistance Program)
HOPWA Housing Opportunities for Persons Living with AIDS
VASH Veteran's Affairs Supportive Housing
SPC Shelter Plus Care and Homeless Assistance Program in conjunction with the Health Department's Continuum of Care Program
HACLB also provides special supportive services to our families through the Family Self Sufficiency Program and Homeownership Programs. These programs provide financial and literacy training, the development of escrow accounts, career and academic guidance, and resource referrals. Job training is also provided through a partnership with the City's Workforce Development Bureau to further assist in the transition of our families to economic self-sufficiency and finally homeownership.
