Housing Element Best Practices

2022 is the year jurisdictions in California will update their housing plan for the next 8 years (2023-2031). The Housing Element Update includes policies and programs that express our collective vision for a future that plans for the new homes our communities need, including appropriate amounts targeted to serve residents with Extremely and Very Low Incomes. This cycle’s update is also the first that will center on racial and social equity. To help jurisdictions make the most of this important opportunity, our friends at MidPeninsula Housing have assembled a set of case studies that profile effective examples from previous Housing Element cycles.
