Housing Methodology Committee

ABAG convenes the Housing Methodology Committee (HMC) for the RHNA cycle.  The following are the 6th RHNA cycle goals:

  • To advise ABAG staff on the RHNA allocation methodology for the RHNA cycle (2022-2030).
  • To ensure the methodology and resulting allocation meet statutory requirements.
  • To ensure the methodology and resulting allocation are consistent with the forecasted development pattern included in Plan Bay Area 2050.

The HMC is a key part of ABAG’s approach to creating the RHNA allocation methodology. Through the HMC, ABAG staff seek to facilitate dialogue and information-sharing in order to enable coordinated action to address the Bay Area’s housing challenges.

The HMC is comprised of:

  • 9 elected officials (one from each Bay Area county)
  • 12 jurisdiction housing or planning staff (at least one from each county)
  • 13 regional stakeholders representing diverse perspectives, from equity and open space to public health and public transit
  • 1 partner from state government

ABAG staff will share information about the HMC’s deliberations and recommendations with the ABAG Regional Planning Committee. Serving as the primary committee for the working group to interact with, the Regional Planning Committee will then use the input from the HMC to make recommendations to the ABAG Executive Board, which has the authority to make final decisions.
