Mayor Garcetti’s Executive Directive 13: Support for Affordable Housing

Mayor GarcettiLos Angeles is facing an unprecedented housing crisis, which threatens our legacy as a city of economic opportunity for all. To combat this crisis Mayor Garcetti set an ambitious goal of permitting 100,000 new housing units by 2021, ensuring we build or preserve at least 15,000 affordable units for low-income households by 2021. That means doubling the City’s production of affordable units, and transforming the lives of about 40,000 Angelenos.

To reach these goals, the Mayor and City Council are advancing initiatives to create new revenue streams for affordable housing, and more incentives for housing production and preservation. Mayor Garcetti also announced Executive Directive 13, Support for Affordable Housing (ED 13) to streamline the development of critical new housing developments that address our housing shortage.
