An Assessment Of L.A.'s Housing Crisis

For almost ten years, Los Angeles hasn't had much of a housing policy. Now it has a $100 million housing trust fund.

Earlier this month, the advisory committee on Los Angeles' $100 million housing trust fund released its report with recommendations on how the fund should expend its money. The Planning Report presents an interview with Los Angeles City Councilmember Wendy Greuel, who is the Chair of the City Council's Housing and Community Development Committee and a former aide to Henry Cisneros at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Greuel also touches on the November 5th election results and the need to further examine municipal governance reform.
