HCD protects the health and safety of Californians by enforcing standards for housing construction, maintenance of farmworker housing and manufactured/factory-built homes.
HCD also proposes amendments to California's residential building standards for new construction to the California Building Standards Commission and helps train local government inspectors to better understand the new requirements. HCD creates specialized standards for CALGreen, the nation's first mandated green-building code.
