(Victor Valley)– Does your neighborhood have access to good housing, schools, jobs, healthcare, and other resources?
The County of San Bernardino is updating its Consolidated Plan and working on a fair housing study called an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing choice. These plans are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the County to receive federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
The Consolidated Plan assesses the current housing market, discusses characteristics of the county’s population, identifies community improvement priorities, and outlines a five-year plan to fund and implement them.
Consolidated Plan Topics of Discussion:
• Citizen Participation and Consultation
• Affordable Housing
• Public and Assisted Housing
• Homeless and Other Special Needs
• Public Facilities and Services
• Barriers to Affordable Housing
The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) will identify barriers to equal access to housing and neighborhood opportunities and will propose strategies to overcome those barriers.
AI Topics of Discussion:
• Public Investment
• Access to Opportunity
• Land Use & Zoning
• Housing Discrimination and Hate Crimes
• Home Mortgage Disclosure Act
