What is a Service Planning Area?
A Service Planning Area, or SPA, is simply a specific geographic region within Los Angeles County.
Due to the large size of LA County (4,300 square miles), it has been divided into 8 geographic areas, primarily for planning, statistical tracking, and providing health and social services targeted to the specific needs of the residents in these different areas.
Please see the table below for a breakdown of LA:RISE Partners and correlated SPAs.
