TULARE COUNTY ASSOCIATION OF GOVERNMENTS

REGIONAL HOUSING NEEDS ASSESSMENT

We worked with the Tulare County Association of Governments (TCAG) to prepare the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) for the 2014-2023 planning period. The RHNA is a required statewide process to address housing issues related to future growth. The RHNA is the plan that assigns to each jurisdiction within Tulare County its “fair share” of unmet housing needs as well as future projected housing needs by income group. TCAG was also in the process of preparing the 2014 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The 2014 RTP, for the first time, included an Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) component which was coordinated with the RHNA, as required by SB 375. We worked with TCAG staff and the cities and county within Tulare County to develop the RHNA consistent with the RTP/SCS.
