Update: RVs on Santa Fe Ave in Walnut Park

This morning, we brought LA County’s Pathway Home initiative to Walnut Park. My staff was on the ground as County teams arrived and offered services and safe housing to every resident of the RV encampment on Santa Fe Ave between Broadway and Independence Ave, just north of South Gate.

I heard the concerns many of you expressed in person, on the phone, and through our official Walnut Park Instagram account about this RV encampment. No one is safer or better off when people are living in dilapidated RVs. It’s not good for our kids who need safe sidewalks to get to and from school, it’s not safe for drivers or cyclists, and it’s not safe for the people living inside them. No person should be forced to live in a motorhome on the street.

They deserve safe housing, and you deserve safe streets.

The RVs have been removed, and the residents were offered hotel rooms and every service and support that the County family has to offer. Those who accepted moved into those rooms right away. The cleanup of the street is ongoing.

I’ll be sharing more details about this RV encampment resolution in the next few days. Stay tuned to this and other important information on Instagram and, if you haven’t already signed up, through my weekly Janice Journal.

Hahn Urges Local Small Landlords to Apply for Funds

Los Angeles, CA –Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn is urging local mom-and-pop landlords to apply for grants through the LA County Rent Relief fund which launched this morning.

“The costs of the pandemic policies that kept people housed fell on the shoulders of local mom-and-pop landlords,” said Supervisor Hahn. “This landlord relief fund is long-overdue, and I urge local property owners who need the help to apply and to call my office if they need any assistance.”

The new fund, launched by the Los Angeles County Department of Consumer and Business Affairs at the direction of the Board of Supervisors, makes $68.6 million available for landlord relief with small landlords eligible to receive up to $120,000 in assistance for past due rent and eligible expenses from April 1, 2022 to present. Eligible property owners must own a rental property in Los Angeles County (properties located in the City of Los Angeles are excluded).

If interested property owners need help completing an online application, they can contact a multilingual call center at (877) 849-0770. Language assistance will be available every day of the week, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. PST, in all County threshold languages (which include Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Armenian, and others).

In-person one-on-one support is also available through DCBA partners.

More information and a link to complete an application is available at lacountyrentrelief.com.
