California Department of Housing and Community Development Launches New Surplus Land Portal
September 7, 2023
The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is excited to announce the launch of the new Surplus Land Portal.
The portal replaces the Public Lands inbox and provides an improved method for local agencies, housing developers, and advocates to submit documentation for surplus or exempt surplus local land, requests for technical assistance and complaints of potential violations of the Surplus Land Act.
It will also guide and prompt users to provide key information to help HCD provide more efficient analysis and review of surplus and exempt surplus determinations as well as provide prompt technical assistance. Each request or complaint submitted will be assigned to an analyst for review.
For more information on HCD’s technical assistance and enforcement of the Surplus Land Act and to access the new Surplus Land Portal, please visit HCD’s Public Lands for Affordable Housing Development webpage.
