The LA ADU Accelerator Program partners with homeowners to rent their accessory dwelling units to older adults facing housing insecurity. In exchange, homeowners receive benefits such as tenant screening, timely rent, and landlord support.
How the Program Works for Homeowners
Eligible homeowners undergo a screening process to assess programmatic fit, landlord fit, and ADU quality. Once accepted into the program, homeowners are matched with a qualified tenant who pays a predetermined affordable rental rate. Selected homeowners and tenants agree to participate in the program for three years. Homeowners receive reliable rent and additional benefits from participating in the program.
The program process has been designed to ensure a safe, easy, and efficient experience for interested homeowners.
To be eligible to apply to the LA ADU Accelerator Program, homeowners must:
Own a residential property in the City of Los Angeles, and
Have an existing, legally permitted ADU with a Certificate of Occupancy (C of O), or be in the process of receiving a C of O.
