Annual Housing Progress Report to HCD is still due April 1

From APA California, March 20, 2020

Although many cities and counties have asked if the deadline can be waived, HCD has responded to the Chapter’s inquiries that HCD has no authority to postpone the Annual Report due date. From a reply by Tom Brinkhuis at California HCD’s Division of Housing Policy Development in Sacramento:

“We … are exploring our options, but the April 1 due date is in statute and HCD cannot change it. … They can submit the APR to us before taking it to their council, and then they can submit a revised APR at any time.”

Brinkhuis reports that he is “currently teleworking and can be reached at (530) 505-1239 during normal business hours.”
