Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG)

The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) is our regional council of governments, which allocates regional housing need to the city and counties in the Bay Area. When considering allocation, past RHNA performance, better public transit and existing jobs are key factors. The RHNA numbers are broken down into categories with an allocation for extremely low, very low-income, low-income, moderate-income and above moderate-income. Most typically, sufficient units are built at the above moderate-income level, but very few at the lower-income levels.
