5 Largest California PHAs by Public Housing Stock


Below you will see which PHAs in California have the largest public housing portfolios.  Some of these will not be a surprise.

  1. Los Angeles Housing Authority- 7193 units
  2. County of Los Angeles Housing Authority-2962 units
  3. San Francisco Housing Authority-2483 units
  4. Sacramento Housing Authority-1699 units
  5. Contra Costa County Housing Authority- 1137 units

Any surprises here?  Don’t forget that many west coast agencies lean more heavily towards Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) than public housing.
