Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH)

Adopted by the City Council on Dec. 13, 2016, and required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) identified the City's fair housing issues, determined the factors that significantly contribute to identified issues, and set fair housing goals to overcome these concerns. While high-quality data and thorough analyses are a central part of the AFH, the value of community participation and input received through a series of outreach events, surveys, stakeholder meetings, and interviews conducted over nine months was key in developing the AFH. The goals identified in the AFH will inform the strategies and actions of the upcoming 2018-2022 Consolidated Plan, including associated Annual Action Plans.
