Affordable Housing

The Town is in the process of undertaking a Comprehensive Advanced Planning Initiative, including a State-mandated update of the Moraga Housing Element, and related General Plan and zoning amendments. As part of the Housing Element, the Town is required to demonstrate to the State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) that it has the capacity to add at least 1,118 new housing units by 2031. Of the 1,118 units, 673 housing units are deemed to be affordable.  The income categories of the 673 Housing Units are:

Income Category

318 Units
Low Income (50% - 80% of AMI)
183 Units
Moderate Income (80% - 120% of AMI)

 *Area Median Income (AMI) is the midpoint of a region's income distribution. For Contra Costa County in 2022, the AMI is $99,950 for an individual and $142,800 for a four-person household.
