Back Home Initiative Overview & Sign-Up

Would you like to earn up to $1,000 a month for up to 15 years, increase your property value and help those less fortunate among us?

If you’re a homeowner in Los Angeles County who seeks an additional source of passive income and you’re concerned that your neighbors may become or are currently houseless, then sign up for the Back Home Initiative (BHI) today!

BHI is a groundbreaking housing alternative that invests in homeowners’ properties and builds intergenerational wealth while helping our neighbors that may become or are currently houseless, particularly in communities most adversely impacted by the epidemic.

Do you have space in your backyard to build an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU)? 

BHI provides eligible homeowners with a move-in ready, fully furnished (appliances included) ADU studio or one bedroom unit, built and maintained on their property FREE of CHARGE for up to 15 years. In addition, property owners receive up to $1,000 monthly stipend for up to 15 years after which, BHI will transfer ADU ownership to the homeowner FREE and CLEAR.

BHI expands upon traditional temporary and permanent housing solutions by connecting eligible homeowners and their newly constructed ADUs with individuals and families at-risk of houselessness or those ready to leave transitional housing. BHI provides comprehensive supports for participating homeowners which includes ADU maintenance, property management, and case management for both homeowners and tenants.
