Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA)

The Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) is a state mandated process whereby the State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) quantifies existing and future housing needs for each region across the state and allocates each region's housing need in response to their projected population and household growth. State law (Government Code §65584) further requires the region's local governments to plan for enough housing to meet the region's need in the Housing Element of their General Plan.

StanCOG, as the Council of Governments (COG), is required by state law to develop and adopt a methodology for allocating a portion of the RHNA determination to each jurisdiction within the Stanislaus region. The Valley Visions Stanislaus (VVS) Steering Committee is tasked with making recommendations on the development process of the RHNA methodology and plan. VVS Steering Committee Members include a representative from each of the local member agencies, Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), StanCOG's Policy Board and Citizens Advisory Committee, and a building industry and environmental justice representative.

Please see the Proposed Methodology document below:
