ABAG Regional Housing Needs Determination (RHND)

The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) identifies the total number of homes that each region in California must plan for to meet the housing needs of people at all income levels.

This two-page overview was developed by the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) to help explain the Regional Housing Needs Determination (RHND) it received from the state and how the numbers were developed. ABAG and its member jurisdictions are then responsible for developing a methodology to allocate a portion of this housing need to every local government in the Bay Area.
