Voice your Comments on the Assessment of Fair Housing
The Department of Housing (DOH) released a draft of the Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) on August 1st for public comment. Comments are due by September 15th to the Department of Housing: firstname.lastname@example.org. This assessment is an important housing document for our county as it is a federal requirement that strives to document challenges and barriers to accessing housing. The analysis must consider a set of assessments that includes: patterns of integration and segregation, racially or ethnically concentrated areas of poverty, disparities in access to opportunity, and disproportionate housing needs. All of these areas are strongly correlated to health as where you live matters to your health, and poverty and racial segregation are all closely tied to health outcomes.
