The Handyworker Program provides free minor home repairs for low-income seniors and persons with permanent disabilities who own and live in a single family home in the City of Los Angeles. These repairs are for routine maintenance or minor improvements that address homeowners’ health, safety, and accessibility concerns. In addition, this program also assists homeowners and renters by installing safety devices such as shower chairs, grab bars, and toilet seat risers to help prevent accidents.
The Accessible Housing Program (AcHP) ensures that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to rent, use, and enjoy affordable rental housing that has received financial or other assistance from the City of Los Angeles (City) or the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles (CRA/LA). Visit the page to find out more about what rental housing developments are covered under the AcHP, accessible housing requirements under the AcHP, reasonable accommodations and modifications, assistance and service animals, effective communications, what qualifies as a disability, and other information on the program.
