Casita Coalition works to remove policy barriers and make it easier to build small homes in all neighborhoods across California – including ADUs, duplexes, granny flats and cottage clusters. From vetting proposals and brainstorming, to identifying innovative program design, model codes and policies, our goal is to share solutions with our growing number of practicing professionals, across disciplines and geographic regions, so we can learn together and implement quickly.
Tools and Resources
HCD Housing Planning Hub
HCD launches the Housing Planning Hub Site, a repository of statewide and regional toolkits, factsheets and guidance on a variety of housing policy areas with a specific focus on priority policy areas. The hub includes interactive maps, model ordinances resources, toolkits, checklists and online trainings. HCD will continually update the resource center as new tools become available.
Essential Housing Campaign
The Housing Innovation Collaborative (HICo)’s most recent initiative “The Essential Housing Campaign” is directly aligned with SCAG’s regional housing production goals, to create the market dynamics needed in order to make building moderate-income housing – for those earning up to 120% of area median income – feasible in Los Angeles, using limited public subsidy.
