One of the fundamental goals for the Upland Community Redevelopment Agency is to provide improvement and preservation of the community’s supply of affordable housing. The Agency and its programs deal with helping very-low, lower, and low-moderate individuals and families in purchasing and improving housing within the City. The Agency’s goals are accomplished, in part, through the execution of four different, but interrelated requirements imposed on redevelopment agencies by the California Community Redevelopment Law (CCRL). The requirements are as follows:

  • An agency must use at least 20 percent of tax increment revenue to increase, improve and preserve the supply of very low-, and low- and moderate-income housing in the community. (CCRL 33334.2)
  • An Agency must replace, within the territorial jurisdiction of the Agency, in equal or greater number, very low-, lower-, and low- and moderate-income housing unites and bedrooms which are destroyed or removed as a result of a redevelopment project. (the “replacement rule”, CCRL Section 33413[a])
  • An agency must ensure that a fixed percentage of all new or substantially rehabilitated dwelling units developed by an agency, inside or outside of a project area, are affordable to very low-, low- and moderate-income person and families. (the “inclusionary rule”, CCRL 33413[b][1])
  • An agency must ensure that a fixed percentage of all new and substantially rehabilitated dwelling units developed within the project area by public or private entities or persons other than the Agency are affordable to very low-, low- and moderate-income persons (the “inclusionary rule”, CCRL 33413[b][2])
