Los Angeles County Development Authority

Community Development Overview

The LACDA works closely with participating cities, diverse communities in the unincorporated areas of the County, and elected representatives to assess community development needs and identify funding priorities. Through annual public meetings, surveys, and other types of citizen participation, communities prioritize their needs and provide input to their local representatives and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for funding consideration. The LACDA then contracts with cities, community-based organizations, County Departments, and other public agencies to provide the needed community improvements and services.

The LACDA also has a full staff of professional construction managers, inspectors, labor compliance representatives, and regulatory specialists who have successfully managed and completed projects cumulatively valued at over $100 million, including new construction, rehabilitation of residential and commercial developments, community and senior centers, libraries, neighborhood and special access parks, and major streetscaping projects.
