LTSC CDC (Little Tokyo Service Center) has a commitment to manage affordable housing properties in greater Los Angeles area. We currently have communities in Little Tokyo, Chinatown, Echo Park and Koreatown. Our senior housing buildings are in Torrance and Sun Valley.

These areas are divided into hubs which you can apply to individually.


Eligibility is based on income and the size of the family. A family must have a total family income below the limit. Each building has a different set of restrictive AMI (Area Median Income) limits. We also review credit and criminal history, eviction, and previous landlord recommendations.

The income limits listed below are current as of January 2013, but may change without notice.

Eligible income limits require your income be below a specified AMI (area median income)


Income limits


35% AMI

50% AMI

60% AMI


































Affordable housing rents are not determined by household income. You must show you are able to pay rent when due and take care of the apartment.

If the community is supported by subsidies from HUD or HACLA, the rents are based on income.

Only these properties participate in a subsidy program: Palm Village (seniors), JCI Gardens (seniors), PHD Apartments, Menlo Family Apartments (special needs) and Far East (special needs).


Step 1: Identify which buildings you are interested in and submit a pre-application form to the hub site of your preference listed below. After the fully completed form is submitted, you will be put on the waiting list. Click here to download a pre-application form.

Step 2: When your name comes to the top of the waiting list, we will contact you by mail to ask you to pick up a full application.

Step 3: Submit a full application. The office will run a credit check and review your personal background and residential history. We may ask you to submit additional documents throughout the application process.
