The Rent Stabilization and Housing Division administers the City's Housing Programs, including the Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO), Inclusionary Housing Program, and Affordable Housing Trust Fund to maintain and promote housing affordability and vibrant neighborhoods where all residents can thrive. We work to achieve this through the fair regulation and maintenance of existing rent stabilized housing, creation of new affordable housing opportunities, and supporting residents aging in place.
The report below provides a summary of housing market trends, ongoing City housing programs, and upcoming initiatives aimed at maintaining and expanding housing affordability in West Hollywood.
The City promotes housing affordability through the Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO), the Inclusionary Housing Program, and partnerships with non-profit affordable housing providers. These programs work to meet the community’s housing needs, limiting rent increases, requiring 20% of units in new residential development to be set aside as affordable, and through collaboration with non-profit housing providers and other government agencies creating affordable housing opportunities for those in greatest need. The City is also a strong advocate for state and federal funding for affordable housing and homelessness, and helps residents remain successful in their housing through connections with supportive services and through the aging in place plan.
