State housing law (RHNA) requires that local jurisdictions plan for future population growth and provide housing for all income levels.  This has been a major challenge for the San Gabriel Valley, a region that is largely built out.  The SGVCOG has actively worked to ensure that member agencies are able to comply with this State mandate through a process that is as equitable as possible and responsive to transportation and other infrastructure investments.  In 2008, the SGVCOG also partnered with the County of Los Angeles to complete a regional homeless services needs assessment.  Since that time, the SGVCOG has been working with member agencies to identify the most effective strategies to address this issue. 


Prior Successes:

  • Completed a regional homeless services needs assessment

  • Increased city-level participation in the LAHSA homeless count


Key Outcomes:

  • Increasing funding for affordable housing projects that benefit San Gabriel Valley residents

  • Increasing compliance with State mandates and goals associated with affordable housing

  • Increasing awareness and utilization of homeless services, programs and funding provided by LA County and other agencies
