In order to meet their affordable housing goals, known as the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA), local cities and counties develop policies and programs as well as find developable land that provide opportunities to develop low-income to market-rate housing. The local housing plans are called Housing Elements, and it’s during this planning process that community members are able to provide input and have their voices heard.
We are currently in the 6th Cycle (2023 to 2031) and because this only occurs once every eight years, the time is now to plan for the future of your community.
View the latest letters from the State of California’s Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) to local city or county, which is in response to the jurisdiction’s submitted Housing Element.
