Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice - Addendum May 2017

The Addendum to the 2014 Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing specifically addresses the housing discrimination, gentrification and displacement, barriers to housing choice, and the conditions of segregation and integration in the seven-county area that includes Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington Counties in Minnesota.  This fair housing planning is required of communities that receive certain funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The analysis was undertaken by the Fair Housing Implementation Council (FHIC).  The members of the FHIC, including the City of Bloomington, administer the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and/or HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs, as well as other Fair Housing programs which require them to certify to HUD that they will affirmatively further fair housing through the operation of their housing and community development programs as well as fair housing activities to overcome impediments.
