Redevelopment projects in our seven CRA/LA project areas must contribute at least 1 percent of development costs towards public art. This policy serves our mission of revitalizing neighborhoods, provides quality art relevant to neighborhood needs, and assures that artists from diverse backgrounds are involved in the creation of public art projects.
Construction Local Hire Policies and Programs
Redevelopment projects in which CRA/LA has invested at least $500,000 must have a Local Hire Program. Projects with investment of $1 million or more and public improvements with investment of $500,000 or more must comply with the CRA/LA Master Project Labor Agreement. Additional requirements pertain to projects in the City Center project area. These policies serve our mission of creating employment opportunities for community area and local residents.
Contracts with CRA/LA in excess of $25,000 and for a period longer than three months are covered by this policy. It requires that contractors and their subcontractors be qualified and capable of performing the contract, and have a record of complying with relevant laws and regulations.
Healthy Neighborhoods Policy
Certain developments are required to use a CRA/LA-approved list of consultants to identify potential sustainability improvements. This policy sets out our “green” building goals and principles, and provides guidance in implementing these goals to benefit people who live and work in our redevelopment project areas.
The CRA/LA is involved in a variety of housing programs designed to help alleviate the severe shortage of affordable housing in the City of Los Angeles. These programs are based on the objectives of the Agency's redevelopment projects, California redevelopment law and the housing policies of the City. The CRA/LA Interim Housing Policy (the "Policy") is intended to serve as the framework for the development and implementation of all housing in which the CRA/LA is involved. It establishes objectives as to location, income mix, tenure type, household type, management, occupancy standards and the major parameters of the Agency's financial assistance programs.

Prevailing Wage Policy
Private developers and owners of property in CRA/LA project areas who enter into agreements with our agency are required to abide by prevailing-wage requirements for construction workers. This policy serves our mission of creating jobs that can support families.
