The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has notified the City of Oakland that the City’s adopted 2023-2031 Housing Element is in full compliance with State Housing Element Law (Article 10.6 of the Gov. Code). The 2023-2031 Housing Element presents the City of Oakland’s strategy and commitment for how it will meet the housing needs of the community over the next 8 years (covering the years 2023-2031).

The 2023-2031 Housing Element was updated through an extensive and inclusive community outreach process that included a deliberate effort to reach Oakland’s most impacted residents, including: Working class communities, Communities of color, Unhoused communities, People with disabilities, Seniors, people who were Formerly incarcerated, Youth, and Communities experiencing environmental injustices. The Housing Element outlines the strategies and policies to address Oakland’s demand for more affordable homes, affirmatively further fair housing for all Oaklanders, and to promote inclusive, vibrant communities for all Oaklanders.

Oakland Planning and Building is transitioning to the implementation of the actions in the Housing Element. The participation, knowledge, and passion of Oaklanders during the implementation process will ensure that we deliver on the vision and goals of the plan over the next 8 years.
