California Department of Housing & Community Development (CA HCD) Permanent Local Housing Allocation (PLHA) Program
In September 2017, the California Legislature approved Senate Bill 2 (SB 2), known as the Building Homes and Jobs Act (Act), which established a $75 recording fee on real estate documents to increase the supply of affordable housing. The Act establishes the Permanent Local Housing (PLHA) program administered by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). The PLHA provides a permanent source of funding to cities and counties to help meet the unmet need for affordable housing and increase the supply of affordable housing units.
The State requires entitlement jurisdictions to use PLHA program funds to increase the supply of affordable housing. In order to receive PLHA program funds, the City of San Leandro is required to submit a PLHA 302(c)(4) Plan detailing the manner in which allocated funds will be used.

The Housing Element is a key component of the City's General Plan, required by state law and updated regularly - usually every five years. The Housing Element identifies and analyzes existing housing needs and determines goals, policies, objectives, financial resources and proposed programs and activities to preserve, improve and develop housing.
