2023 RHNA 6 Housing Element Statutory Provisions Checklist

The RHNA 6 Housing Element Statutory Provisions Checklist can assist cities to ensure that they are following all of the statutory provisions related to Housing Elements. It may be useful to have this as part of the official record in case there are disputes about whether the Housing Element complies with state law. To be in substantial compliance with state law, a Housing Element must contain all of the provisions mandated by state law. This table lists the statutory requirements in the left column, and the jurisdiction can indicate in the right column where in the Housing Element the requirement is satisfied. Jurisdictions should consult with their legal counsel to determine whether the table, along with a response to each of HCD’s comments should be incorporated into the resolution adopting the Housing Element.
