AFFH

The City of Burlington, along with the Burlington and Winooski Housing Authorities are soliciting input on their Assessment of Fair Housing Plan. Public comment period begins on August 18, 2017. The Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) is a legal requirement that the City and Housing Authorities must complete in order to continue receiving federal housing and community development funding from the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). The AFH includes an analysis of fair housing data, an assessment of housing issues and contributing factors, and identification of fair housing priorities and goals specific to Burlington, Winooski and surrounding areas. Examples of fair housing issues include local and regional demographics related to segregation, racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty, access to opportunity, disproportionate housing need, publicly supported housing, accesses to housing by persons with disabilities, and fair housing enforcement. Please find a current draft of the AFH here. Comments are being accepted to Marcy Esbjerg at the City of Burlington, mesbjerg@burlingtonvt.gov or 865-7171.
