    Extremely low income
    Very low income
    Low Income
    Moderate Income
    Above Moderate Income
    WHO DECIDES HOW MUCH AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS NEEDED?
    • Section of a city’s General Plan
    • Must include:
    Analysis of housing need. and constraints that work against meeting that need.
    Land use policies and programs to support affordable housing.
    3. A list of sites with potential for additional multi-unit affordable housing to achieve RHNA numbers.
    • City must rezone enough sites to meet the affordable housing need.
    What is a Housing Element?

  • NO!
