Moderate Income Housing Report Guidance

Depending on the population count, your jurisdiction may be required to review the implementation of its moderate income housing element on an annual basis. This review includes the filing of a report of the findings made as part of that analysis to the Utah Housing and Community Development Division (HCD).

The reporting content for 2022 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

The reporting content for 2023 and beyond will also include:

  • A description of each action taken by the jurisdiction during the previous fiscal year to implement the selected strategies;
  • A description of each land use regulation and/or decision made by the jurisdiction during the previous fiscal year 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 fiscal year 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
