AFFIRMATIVELY FURTHERING FAIR HOUSING
The City, as a direct recipient of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), is required to complete an “Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice” along with a certification that states it will affirmatively further fair housing in its community.
The certification further requires that the grantee undertake fair housing planning through: 1) the completion of an Analysis of Impediments (AI) to Fair Housing Choice in the community; 2) the undertaking of actions to eliminate identified impediments; and 3) the maintenance of records regarding the analysis and actions.
Through its community development programs, HUD seeks to further its goal of increasing equal and free access to residential housing in order to achieve equality of opportunity for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or familial status.
For any questions or additional information regarding the City’s 2012 AI, contact Esmerita Rivera at (916) 774-5469, Esmerita Rivera.
The 2012 Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) document updates and replaces the 2005 version.
