Placer County and City of Roseville Win Prohousing Designation

Congratulations to Placer County and the City of Roseville for receiving the Prohousing designation from State of California. Governor Newsom commended these jurisdictions for “stepping up and being proactive when it comes to their commitment to build more housing.”

Amongst other benefits, the Prohousing designation will provide Placer County and Roseville with higher point scores when competing for funding from the Department of Housing and Community Development (“HCD”). In the case of Placer County’s award, the Governor’s Office cited one of the deciding factors was “the county has established consistent funding for its local housing trust fund to both preserve workforce housing and to purchase additional sites for affordable housing development.”

Below is a list of all ten jurisdictions that have received the designation to date:

  • Citrus Heights
  • El Cerrito
  • Fontana
  • Oakland
  • Placer County
  • Roseville
  • Sacramento
  • Sacramento County
  • San Diego
  • West Sacramento
