Existing law authorizes a housing authority to lease housing to persons of low income throughout the county in which it operates, except as provided. This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to this provision. (a)An authority may provide leased housing to persons of low income throughout the county in which it operates, subject to the following conditions: (1)No commitment to provide leased housing outside the area of operation may be made in advance of construction without approval of the local governing body of the city or, if an unincorporated area, the county with jurisdiction of the site of
construction. (2)Leased housing may not be provided within the area of operation of another authority if the local governing body of the other authority disapproves in advance. (b)An authority may contract with the redevelopment agency of any city within the county to exercise its powers in the city pursuant to a contract with the redevelopment agency funded from the redevelopment agency’s Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund for the purpose of increasing or improving the city’s supply of low- and moderate-income housing.
