The website for the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, hacla.gosection8.com, is the ideal place to start a search for houses that take Section 8. It has partnered with another website, gosection8.com, to provide comprehensive resources for finding these homes.
In addition, there are private websites such as wetakesection8.com that provide Section 8 search services. However, the Los Angeles city and government websites are ideal places to start, especially if you have general questions or if you still have to fill out an application. Go to Lacity.org, then click "For residents" and then click "Housing." There is also information about other social services and resources on these sites.
