LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Mayor Eric Garcetti Wednesday urged property owners to sign up for the city’s Lease-Up program, which matches landlords with tenants who need a home, with rent guaranteed by the government.

“For property owners, it’s a dream come true. That rent is guaranteed to come to you each month without having to hit anybody up for it, without anybody missing a month,” Garcetti said.
