HACLA Zero Income Certification
The Housing Authority of the City of LA (HACLA) has updated their policy on zero income certification. Effective immediately, applicants with no income will self-certify on a signed statement that they have no income. Additional verification of zero income from SSA, DPSS, and EDD will no longer be required.
New HACLA Email Policy
As a result of the pandemic and remote working, document submission often occurs via email. In an attempt to confirm the successful email exchange of required documentation, HACLA has implemented a process to send a “receipt” email indicating that emails with attachments have been received. Follow-up emails will be sent if the document is incomplete or illegible. HACLA requests that partners reciprocate by sending a “received” email to HACLA workers who email document attachments.
*Until otherwise stated, both LACDA and HACLA will allow clients to self-certify for zero income without submitting additional verification.
