The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) requires that all entitlement communities develop a Three or Five Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice Action Plan. This document combines the planning, application and reporting requirements for four HUD entitlement programs for which the City of Richmond receives funds: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA).
In order to prepare this plan, the City must have input from the citizens of Richmond, particularly low and moderate income residents, on needs in the area of housing and community development. As an entitlement jurisdiction of the Housing and Urban Development funding, the City of Richmond is obligated to identify and analyze impediments to fair housing choice that exist within in the City. The City has contracted with Housing Opportunities Made Equal of Virginia, Inc. to conduct a study on housing discrimination and barriers to obtain housing.
City will also hold a public hearing on this study on Thursday, June 20, 2013 at 6:30 P.M. in the 3rd Floor Large Conference Room at 1500 E. Main St., Richmond, VA 23219
Public comments, oral or written on the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice on this study will be accepted from June 4, 2013 to June 28, 2013. Copies of the study can be reviewed at the Department of Economic and Community Development located at 1500 E. Main Street, Suite 400, and at the Main Branch of the Richmond Public Library located at 101 E. Franklin Street or on the City’s website, www.richmondgov.com.
