Interested Elderly Families Must Apply Before December 31, 2019

The Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) is now accepting registrants for its Lancaster Homes public housing community.  Lancaster Homes has 120 one- and two-bedroom units for elderly families, and is a smoke-free community located in Lancaster, California.  Registrants may add their name to the waiting list through December 31, 2019, 11:59 p.m., by registering at or calling (626) 586-1845.  This waiting list is not for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.

“Housing helps to create independence and supports healthy aging for older adults,” Monique King-Viehland, LACDA Executive Director, said. “We are excited to open the waiting list for Lancaster Homes to help lift up those individuals and families.”

An elderly family is a household whose head, co-head, spouse, or sole member is a person who is at least 62 years of age. The elderly family may include two or more persons who are at least 62 years of age living together, or one or more persons who are at least 62 years of age living with one or more live-in aides.  Registrants will not be accepted for households that are non-elderly (61 years of age or below). 

Applicants will be selected from the waiting list in the order of admission preferences, followed by date and time. If the LACDA receives sufficient applications prior to the established December 31, 2019 deadline, the LACDA will notify the public through its website that the waiting list will close at an earlier date.

All media may contact Elisa Vásquez, LACDA Public Information Officer, at (626) 586-1762.
