Planning Moderate-Income Housing and Reporting
Recent legislation made significant revisions to the moderate income housing element in the state code. Through this legislation, greater clarity as well as new strategies were outlined as options to be used within moderate income housing plans. The requirement for the moderate income housing element and reporting of progress toward implementation was also amended.
Report submissions are due on August 1, 2023. Late submissions will not be accepted.
Moderate Income Housing Report Guidance
Depending on your population, your jurisdiction may be required to annually report on the implementation of its moderate income housing element. State statute describes two different reports which jurisdictions must complete, an initial report and subsequent reports.
An initial report will be completed in the first year that a jurisdiction is required to report. The jurisdiction must update the general plan to include moderate income housing strategies and an implementation plan for the next five years. The reporting content for the initial report will include:
- A description of each moderate income housing strategy selected by the jurisdiction; and
- An implementation plan for those strategies with specific measures and benchmarks
In the years following the initial report, a jurisdiction will document their progress toward implementing the strategies identified in the initial report. The reporting content for subsequent reports will include:
- A description of each action taken by the jurisdiction during the previous 12-months to implement the selected strategies;
- A description of each land use regulation and/or decision made by the jurisdiction during the previous 12-months to implement the selected strategies, including an explanation of how the regulation and/or decision supports the jurisdiction’s efforts to implement the strategy;
- A description of any barriers encountered by the jurisdiction in the previous 12-months in implementing the strategies;
- Information regarding the number of internal and detached ADUs located within the jurisdiction (i.e. building permits, business licenses to rent);
- A description of how the market has responded to the selected strategies, including the number of entitled moderate income housing units or similar data; and
- Any recommendations on how the State can support the jurisdiction in implementing the strategies.

Annual reports will be due by August 1 of each year to HCD.
If HCD makes a determination in reviewing the annual report that the submission does not meet the requirements, a notice of noncompliance will be provided to the jurisdiction so that the jurisdiction may either request an appeal within 10-days of receiving the notice or correct deficiencies within 90 days of receiving that notice.
