Proposed Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) Allocation Methodology

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) will conduct a public information session related to the Proposed RHNA Allocation Methodology with options, which is officially available for public review and comment as of August 2, 2019. The RHNA is mandated by State Housing Law to quantify the existing and projected need for housing by income categories for each local jurisdiction during specified planning periods. SCAG is in the process of developing the 6th cycle RHNA allocation plan which will cover the planning period October 2021 through October 2029. After SCAG adopts the RHNA allocation plan in October 2020, local jurisdictions will have one year to update their Housing Elements to ensure adequate zoning capacity for the allocated housing needs by income categories.

The following public information session will provide information regarding SCAG’s proposed RHNA allocation methodology options, which are available at

SCAG, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, is committed to providing special accommodations and translation services to those who are interested in participating in the public information session. We ask that you provide your request for special accommodations or translation services at least 72 hours prior to the session so that SCAG has sufficient time to make arrangements. Please contact
