Assembly Bill 1907 has been introduced to exempt certain emergency shelters, supportive housing and affordable housing from the California Environmental Quality Act. The affordable housing exemption requires a recorded affordability restriction for 55 years and the dedication of all of the units within the development to lower income households.

The units would also have to be funded, in whole or in part, by the Multifamily Housing Program or either the HOME Investment Partnerships Program or the Community Development Block Grant Program, both of whichare administered by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. The CEQA exemption would apply to any activity approved or carried out by a public agency in furtherance of providing emergency shelters, supportive housing, or affordable housing, including, but not limited to, any action to lease, convey, or encumber land owned by that agency, any action to facilitate the lease, conveyance, or encumbrance of land owned by that agency, or any action to provide financial assistance in furtherance of providing emergency shelters, supportive housing, or affordable housing.
