ASSESSMENT OF FAIR HOUSING
The Community Development Commission (CDC) and the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles (Housing Authority) have embarked on developing a joint Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) which is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a condition of receiving Federal funding to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing (AFFH) within the jurisdiction.
CONSULTATION AND COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION
The AFH development process begins with inclusive consultation and community participation intended to result in the setting of fair housing goals to increase fair housing choice and provide equal access to opportunity for all community members. The CDC and Housing Authority will then use the fair housing goals and priorities established in the AFH to inform the investments and other decisions made in the Consolidated Plan, Public Housing Agency Plan, and other planning processes.
The Schedule of Events is listed to the left. As dates and any applicable information such as locations for meetings or public hearings are established, this webpage will be updated accordingly.
We urge the community at large to become involved in the AFH planning process including the following activities currently taking place:
- FOCUS GROUPS
Currently, four (4) focus groups are being held. Each focus group is planned to meet four times through March 9th. Click here for more information.
