Residential Sound Insulation Program (RSIP)

The RSIP, administered by the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA), provides grants to eligible property owners to sound insulate residential homes and rental units from noise caused by aircraft arriving and departing the Los Angeles International Airport.

To be eligible for the grants, the property must be located within designated communities of the Lennox, Del Aire, or Athens. The property will be inspected, surveyed, and noise tested to determine eligibility. Once the property is qualified, sound insulation improvements may include replacing existing windows and doors with sound-rated doors and windows. Installation of an air conditioning or ventilation system, and upgrades of electrical service panels, if required. The value of these repairs range from $27,000 to $32,000 per unit. There is no cost to the property owner for any of the noise insulation improvements.

Properties are considered on a block-by-block priority basis, beginning with the highest impacted areas first. The RSIP will try to service property owners on a first-come, first-served basis, on the date the application is submitted; however, this is not the only factor determining placement on a waiting list. Other factors include: block priority, Community Noise Equivalency Level (CNEL) area, funding type restrictions, and the condition of the property.
