California state law recognizes that local governments play a vital role in developing affordable housing. In 1969, the state mandated that all California cities, towns and counties must plan for the housing needs of our residents—regardless of income.

This state mandate is called the Housing Element and Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA). As part of RHNA, the California Department of Housing and Community Development, or HCD, determines the total number of new homes the Bay Area needs to build—and how affordable those homes need to be—in order to meet the housing needs of people at all income levels. Each local government must then update the Housing Element of its General Plan to show the locations where housing can be built and the policies and strategies necessary to meet the community’s housing needs.

The City's current Housing Element is for the planning period from 2015 - 2023. The City of Gilroy will begin the process of updating its Housing Element in spring/summer 2021. The City will host a series of community meetings and public hearings prior to its anticipated adoption in late 2022. The new Housing Element will cover the planning period from 2023 - 2030.
