The California Tax Credit Allocation Committee/Housing Community Development (CTCAC/HCD) published the 2024 Draft Opportunity Maps. The Opportunity Maps are designed to assist in advancing specific Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) objectives. The purpose of each mapping layer is Neighborhood Opportunity, which identifies areas in every region of the state whose characteristics are associated with positive economic, educational and health outcomes for low-income families. Also, The Poverty & Segregation layer identifies areas that meet standards for both high or “concentrated” poverty rates and racial segregation to increase access to opportunity.
