After exhausting a long waiting list begun five years ago, the city will begin taking applications on Sept. 6 for a federal rental-assistance program. The program helps low-income families, senior citizens and disabled people pay rent until they can pay on their own. City officials say recipients stay with the program for an average of five years, but there is no time limit. "Hopefully, people are able to get on their feet, but Congress hasn't made any limitations," said Lynnette M.

Brad Ball used to play cards with his friends every night. But the congenial gathering is withering away because the players, all of whom are developmentally disabled, are being evicted from their federally subsidized units at Arbor Park Apartment Homes in Anaheim. Instead of the usual six or more sitting in, the group is down to four or fewer players, and "that's not enough to have a good game," Ball said. "I used to love this place, but I don't anymore," the 47-year-old said.

City housing officials will begin conducting background checks for participants in a federally funded rent assistance program after the City Council's adoption last month of an administrative plan for the program. Housing division administrator Steve Wagner said that if a background check by police turns up criminal or drug-related activity in the last five years, an applicant would not be eligible for assistance under the HUD-funded program, known as Section 8.

Acting on legislation tailored for riot-damaged Los Angeles and other depressed inner cities, the House Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a $28.8-billion housing bill despite a White House veto threat. The omnibus measure, approved 369 to 54, would authorize a special "New Towns" provision to rebuild devastated areas of South Central Los Angeles and would triple the amount of funds requested by President Bush for housing grants to state and local governments.

A San Fernando Valley legal aid firm Friday filed suit against Lancaster's plan to build $24 million in roadway overpasses with money that state law mandates be reserved for low- to moderate-income housing, the second challenge in the past month. Meanwhile, the city disclosed it has paid its law firm more than $755,000 in the past five years--in addition to the city attorney's pay the firm collects--to advise it on 30 bond issues similar to those proposed for the overpasses.

The Clinton Administration asked lawmakers on Tuesday for an additional $450 million for moving poor families out of decayed housing projects and experimental efforts to aid the homeless. Housing Secretary Henry G. Cisneros said $250 million would be used to create 5,000 homes for tenants of "severely distressed" public housing. He said the remaining money would finance pilot projects for the homeless.

The plan was to build 20 single-family homes, priced to move and marketed for sale to low-income, working mothers. But the project, which was jointly planned by the city Housing Authority and a nonprofit Latina group in Lake View Terrace, has been scrapped and the land put up for sale, city officials said this week. The development--the first of its kind planned in the San Fernando Valley--would have cost about $4.3 million, but federal budget cutbacks prevented the U.S.

A county housing office that administers $500,000 in federal funds a year is riddled with mismanagement and has appropriated money in a haphazard way, possibly to building contractors unqualified for financial help, an audit has concluded. The highly critical review of the housing and community development division of the county's Environmental Management Agency details a host of problems ranging from suspected conflicts of interest to poor enforcement of eligibility requirements for loans.
