This letter from the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) includes the full suite of data requested by HCD, including:
- ABAG’s Plan Bay Area 2050 Regional Growth Forecast (“Regional Forecast”)
- Key data assumptions related to household formation and vacancy rates
- Comparable regions for estimation of the overcrowding and cost burden adjustments
Documenting these submissions provides maximum transparency into the Regional Housing Needs Determination (RHND) process not only for HCD, but for local and regional policymakers, as well as the public at large.
