Housing Policies

The Community Development Department manages housing policies and regulations. The Economic Development Department's Housing Division administers housing programs and provides critical funding resources that create housing opportunities for Stockton residents to ensure they have decent, safe, and affordable housing. The Housing Division also implements green building practices for rehabilitation and new construction projects and has identified the following housing priorities:

  • Preserve, improve, and expand the supply of affordable housing for low-income households
  • Provide homeownership opportunities for first-time homebuyers
  • Provide housing and services for the City’s homeless population, including homeless prevention

Both departments work together to ensure that housing needs are met in the City of Stockton. The City of Stockton's General Plan is a foundational guide for long-range planning and zoning considerations. The Housing Element component of the General Plan directs housing policy and program recommendations for the City. Policies and programs are updated periodically by staff and revised based on past performance, market conditions, and available resources.
