Regional Housing Needs Assessment

Status:For Information

Below are resources for the Regional Housing Needs Allocation process.  The “RHNA” is the process where a council of governments allocates a regional wide housing number to local agencies within that region.  The city or county must then develop a housing element that accommodates its assigned need.   This web page focuses more on the allocation than the city to city planning.  And it is not a comprehensive set of resources.  Instead we have selected representative resources that most specifically related to the role of regional governments in the process of planning for housing.  

We encourage users to submit recommendations of other resources we should include.
