Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) Mandate

The Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) establishes the total number of housing units that each city and county must plan for within an eight-year planning period.

The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) Regional Housing Needs Plan (RHNP), officially assigns the allocations to cities and counties in the six-county Sacramento region. The current RHNP covers the planning period from January 1, 2013 to October 31, 2021. The allocation is based on the SACOG region’s projected housing needs over the planning period. 

The state-mandated RHNA process (Government Code Sections 65580 et seq.) requires SACOG to develop a methodology that determines how to divide and allocate an overall allocation that the region receives from the state. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) determined that the total regional housing need in the SACOG area for this planning period is 104,970 housing units. The RHNA methodology distributed these units to each city and county within El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba counties, including the Tahoe Basin of El Dorado and Placer counties.
