What is your housing story? What challenges do you face in finding the housing you need? Can your family find quality schools and employment? Do you think you have experienced housing discrimination?
Take the regional Analysis of Impediments survey to help Central Texas cities, counties and housing authorities learn more about why you live where you live and what challenges you face when it comes to housing.
The City of Austin, Travis County, Williamson County, Pflugerville, Round Rock, and area housing authorities are collaborating on this regional housing and economic opportunity study to identify meaningful actions to overcome historic patterns of segregation, promote fair housing choice, and foster inclusive communities that are free from discrimination.
In 2016, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) launched a new approach to identifying fair housing challenges in a city and region, called the Assessment of Fair Housing. This approach encouraged communities to embrace a more comprehensive planning process, focusing on economic, as well as housing barriers.
This survey will inform the decision about whether Central Texas receives federal housing and community development funds from HUD. This requirement originates from the Fair Housing Act of 1968, which mandates that HUD administer programs and activities relating to housing and urban development in a manner that affirmatively furthers the policies of the Act.
The overall goal of the The Central Texas Fair Housing Assessment is to help communities improve economic conditions for all residents, in a way that best fits the community.
The Central Texas Analysis of Impediments survey is available online through June 30. It takes about 15 minutes to complete, and it’s available in six languages. Additional accommodations are available by request by calling 1-800-748-3222 ext. 236 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the study can be found at www.centraltexasfairhousing.org.
Stay tuned for public hearing dates and the timing of the public comment period in December 2018 and January 2019.
