The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has voted to issue more than $65 million in bonds to finance a planned affordable housing complex north of Florence Avenue in Inglewood.

The joint venture between Venice Community Housing and the Social Justice Learning Institute (SJLI), called Sankofa Place at Centinela, is to be built on a 4,000-square-foot lot where a church currently stands. Plans call for demolishing existing structures to make way for a 7,000-square-foot residential building and a 1,600-square-foot community facility that will house SJLI’s program headquarters. Founded in 2008, SJLI offers programs that help improve health and education in communities of color. Its other missions include tenant protection, tenant education, and promoting affordable housing.

The project will include 120 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments – reserved for low-income and formerly homeless households whose incomes are between 30 and 80 percent of the area median income level – as well as parking spaces.
