Creating a New Asset Management Model to Support Affordable Housing

The City of Los Angeles is in the midst of an unprecedented affordable housing crisis. Surging rents and low median incomes have threatened the welfare of the city’s most vulnerable residents, bringing many to the verge of homelessness. To alleviate the crisis, the city has set an ambitious goal of building or preserving at least 15,000 affordable units for low-income households by 2021, which would effectively double the city’s production of affordable units.

FUSE Fellow Sean Doss will help the city define the requirements for and roll out new systems for managing L.A.'s housing assets. Sean will help develop a more integrated, comprehensive, and sustainable asset management model that will help the Housing and Community Investment Department of Los Angeles focus staff time efficiently while creating a more comprehensive and actionable set of reports and trends about the portfolio.
