Policy & Research

The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) conducts research and analysis of California's housing markets, identifies California's housing challenges, and develops policies that support housing and community development.

In addition to developing policy, HCD serves as an educator on policy, creating policy briefs, white papers, and special reports on intersectional housing policy issues, such as climate change and homelessness. HCD also serves as analyst on policy and legislation, informing the Office of the Governor, state legislators and their staff, state departments and agencies, local elected officials, government employees, developers, advocates, media, and the general public.
