Welcome to the West Hollywood Inclusionary Housing Main Page. On this page you will find information on income levels, rents and sales prices for the City's inclusionary housing program.

The Inclusionary Housing Program, adopted by the West Hollywood City Council on May 1, 1986 and deemed effective on June 1, 1986, is based on Chapter 19.22 of the West Hollywood Municipal Code. 

Inclusionary housing is a land use tool utilized to provide affordable housing. “Inclusionary” can be defined as a mandatory requirement to reserve a specific percentage of housing units for lower income households in new residential developments. The affordable units are expected to be dispersed throughout the development in order to generate a mix of income levels within residential areas and offer access to public and commercial services regardless of economic status and income levels.

The West Hollywood Rent Stabilization and Housing Department maintains a wait list of all eligible program participants who have registered for the waitlists. Interested parties to be listed on the waitlist will be required to complete the waitlist registration form, provided the program’s waitlist is open.

The registration form requests an interested party’s source and amount of income, assets and additional information related to employment, disability or retirement, pension or other sources of income. Please note the wait time for an affordable unit is based on availability and cannot be estimated.
