Great news for low-income families in search of affordable housing! The City Council on June 1 approved a 100 percent affordable housing project right here in the Ninth District.
Hollywood Community Housing Corporation received the green light to develop 43 units along Central Avenue and Jefferson Boulevard next to Angelus Funeral Home—a historic South Central monument designed by famed architect, Paul R. Williams.
The Paul Williams Project, at 1010 E. Jefferson Blvd., will offer tenants FREE onsite supportive services, including ESL, GED, financial literacy, and youth programming.
The development, which is slated for very-low and low-income households, preserves and restores the landmark funeral home designed by renowned architect Paul R. Williams, who was the first African American member of the American Institute of Architects.
Construction to the complex is expected to begin in early 2017. To stay up to date on subsidized housing opportunities in the City of Los Angeles please click here.
