The South Los Angeles Initiatives (SLA)

The South Los Angeles (SLA) Initiatives will aggressively and demonstrably strengthen the socio-economic condition of South Los Angeles. Key to the success of these Initiatives is bringing together stakeholders including the residents of South Los Angeles and the relevant City departments and entities to:

work together in coordinating community and economic development;
- identify physical and institutional constraints;
- partner on new and existing programs; and
- determine how resources can be better leveraged to meet the economic development, investment, business attraction, social services, and workforce preparation needs in SLA.
