To comply with state housing law, jurisdictions within California must update their housing element every eight (8) years. In collaboration with the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), SCAG has developed a housing needs data package for each local jurisdiction. These data are available as complete reports as well as in raw format. HCD has pre-certified these data and reports for use in local jurisdictions’ 6th cycle housing element updates.
SCAG encourages elected officials, stakeholders, and the general public to participate in the RHNA process and provide comments on RHNA. All written comments regarding the 6th RHNA cycle received are reviewed by SCAG staff and as part of the public record, are posted on this webpage. SCAG staff will continue to post comments as they are received. Written comments on RHNA can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
