The California Business, Transportation and Housing Agency (BTH) was a state cabinet-level agency in the government of California. It was superseded by the new California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) on July 1, 2013.

The Business, Transportation and Housing Agency was responsible for oversight of 14 offices and departments and four economic development programs and initiatives within the state government.[1] The Agency’s portfolio was one of the largest and most diverse in the State of California. As the lead State Agency for economic development, BT&H strove to maintain and enhance California's leading role in the global economy through the Agency’s programs. Its operations addressed a myriad of issues that directly impacted the state’s economic vitality and quality of life including transportation, public safety, affordable housing, international trade, financial services, tourism, and managed health care.

From March 2012, the Acting Secretary for Business, Transportation and Housing was Brian P. Kelly.
