Planning Ahead - Housing Investment Plan
Implementing Housing Programs & Policies
The Housing Investment Plan (HIP) is a strategic document that prioritizes how the City will use its resources to implement its programs and policies in the current planning period to meet its housing objectives.  The HIP is typically developed over several months through extensive consultation with industry experts and is approved by the City Council with input from the public.

The HIP complements two other major planning documents - the Consolidated Plan, which governs the use of federal funding, and the Housing Element, which is a state-mandated blueprint for how the City will plan to accommodate both market-rate and affordable housing demand.
