Inclusionary Housing ProgramThe City of West Sacramento has implemented an inclusionary housing program to increase the amount of affordable housing in the City and to promote the development of mixed-income communities. The program requires developers of all new residential projects to include at least 10% of their units as affordable to lower-income households.
