The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has voted to approve $42 million in funding for new affordable and supportive housing developments.  The five projects - located in the San Fernando Valley, South Los Angeles, and the Antelope Valley - will create a total of 335 residential units at a total estimated cost of $157 million.

The first project, which comes from non-profit developer A Community of Friends, would rise from a currently empty site at 6604 S. West Boulevard in Hyde Park.  Plans call for the construction of a four-story building containing 64 low- and very low-income housing units in addition to on-site supportive services.

The FSY Architects-designed development, estimated to cost approximately $27.5 million, will receive $7.76 million in No Place Like Home funds from the County.

A Community of Friends previously built the abutting Silver Star Apartments, which also provides subsidized affordable housing.

The Board of Supervisors voted to provide $12.1 million in No Place Like Home funds for Ambrosia, a proposed 90-unit housing development slated for a vacant site at 800-818 W. 8th Street.

The estimated cost of the project is $8.6 million.
