State law requires the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) to develop a methodology for distributing the Bay Area’s portion of the state housing needs to local governments within the nine-county region. The Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) is one of ABAG's many responsibilities to ensure that affordable housing is planned to meet everyone’s needs in the Bay Area.
This page collects information about the RHNA, including:
- RHNA background and history
- Timeline, schedules and milestones
- Appeals process

The page is a rich repository of background information, key resources and technical assistance related to the RHNA.
