This is a joint initiative by the County of Los Angeles and the Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to guide the public on how to plan, finance, and build Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) in the region. Sometimes referred to as granny flats or backyard homes, ADUs offer many benefits to homeowners while helping to address the broader affordable housing needs facing Los Angeles. 

Whether you are a homeowner interested in building another home on your property for an elderly parent or to generate rental income or a builder or planner seeking to increase the affordable housing supply throughout the County, this website offers resources to help you achieve your goal.
