The Compton Local Housing Authority (LHA) was established in 1969 pursuant to State legislation. On December 1, 1976, the LHA entered into an Annual Contributions Contract with HUD and received allocation of Section 8 Certificate units. The Housing Authority provides assistance without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or disability status.

To carry out its mission, the LHA operates two programs: the Housing Choice Voucher Program, which provides monthly rental assistance to participants who want to rent from a private landlord, but cannot afford the full monthly rental payment; and the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program, which assists families in creating plans that will lead to economic independence.
