Community Assistance Parking Program

The  Community Assistance Parking Program (CAPP) was created to assist homeless individuals with open or unpaid parking citations, by allowing him/her to pay in the form of community service. The Los Angeles City Council authorized the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) to establish CAPP on February 14, 2017. Participants of CAPP must provide a proof of completion form to the City of Los Angeles upon completion of service hours. To estimate how many hours are required for a fine click here. For more information email us at or call (213) 978-4400.

Request an Installment Payment Plan:

Payment plans are available for citizens whose financial situation qualifies them as a very low-income household, using guidelines established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This IPP does NOT cancel your fine. Once approved it simply allows the total amount due to be paid in installments over a 3-month period (a first installment of 60% of the total due, followed by two installments of 20% of the total).

You will be required to provide detailed income information as part of your IPP request. The Parking Violations Bureau will consider all forms of income, while determining your eligibility for an IPP.

Request an IPP by phone:
