The City of Grover Beach is working on an update to the Housing Element that will review and modify housing policies and programs to demonstrate that the City can accommodate the City’s (Regional Housing Needs Allocation) RHNA and reflect changes in state and federal housing law.  

The RHNA is produced by the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and identifies the project housing needs in the region. For the San Luis Obispo region, the RHNA is 10,810 dwelling units. The San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) is responsible for distributing this allocation between the cities and the unincorporated county. The City’s 2020-2028 RHNA is as follows:
