FAQ | Benefits

How will the USC Village benefit you?
The USC Village redevelopment is the largest economic development project to be proposed in South Los Angeles. It will be an economic engine for the city and Los Angeles county, generating 12,000 new jobs (4,000 construction-related, 8,000 permanent), and much-needed funds and tax increment financing. The tax increment financing provides needed funding for low-income housing, community parks, and neighborhood beautification. In addition, The Village will provide housing for USC students and faculty adjacent to campus, reducing traffic in the neighborhoods and freeing up substantial housing in the community for local residents.

If you live in the community, you can shop at USC Village, or you may find a job through USC’s Local Hiring Program. Once the village is built, you’ll be able to shop or dine with friends and family or simply stroll through the beautiful open spaces. These are just a few of the ways USC Village can benefit you.
