Header photo for Housing Element 

 

summary 

The Housing Element is part of the City’s General Plan and sets forth the policies and programs to address the housing needs of all households in Sacramento. It is the City’s 8-year housing strategy and commitment for how it will meet the housing needs of everyone in the community. State law (Government Code Sections 65580-65589.8) requires that every city and county in California adopt a Housing Element, subject to State approval, as part of its General Plan. Per SB 375 (Statutes of 2008), the planning period for the Housing Element is eight years. This places the Housing Element Cycle on a different timeline than the City’s regular 5-year updates to its General Plan. The City’s current 2013-2021 Housing Element will expire in October 2021.
