HCD Releases 2022 Statewide Housing Plan

The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) recently released the 2022 Statewide Housing Plan (plan), which is a statutorily required report that is updated every four years to outline the state’s housing challenges and strategies to address them over the next 10 years.

The updated plan lays out California’s vision to meet its goal of adding at least 2.5 million homes over roughly eight years, with no less than 1 million of those homes targeted for lower-income households. This represents the cumulative number of homes that cities and counties across California must zone for through 2030 by law and is more than double the housing planned for in the last eight-year housing needs cycle.

The plan includes a 10-year Data Strategy and a Housing Data Dashboard. The Data Strategy lays out goals and data priorities to help target anti-displacement and homelessness prevention resources, preserve existing affordable housing, remove barriers to development, and support land use policies that promote housing for all Californians. The Data Dashboard provides users with detailed data on housing conditions and costs, households and their housing needs, and housing production at the state, county, and regional level – making the latest housing data available in an intuitive interface.

HCD consulted with stakeholders through listening sessions, surveys, and workgroups to develop the Statewide Housing Plan, and CSAC staff participated in this process.
