Hamid Pournamdari

Director of housing

(310) 349-1600  Email

I am doing my best to help over 1200 of our Section 8 clients to maintain safe, sanitary, and affordable housing in the City of Hawthorne.

Mr. Pournandari graduated from Cal State Los Angeles in 1997 with a Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering and has been working for the City of Hawthorne Housing Dept for over 21 years (8 years as a Housing Associate, 5 years as a Housing Administrator, and now 8 years as the Housing Director). Mr. Pournandari's responsibility as a Housing Director is to oversee the program on a daily basis to make sure the program is complying with HUD Rules and regulations.

The Department of Housing is responsible for administering the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program under the Federal Program of U, S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Currently, we are assisting 1,160 families who are low-income and do not earn enough to keep pace with rising rental housing costs.
