Analysis of Impediments

Analysis of Impediments

The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice is a Fair Housing Planning Process that begins with a review of impediments to fair housing choice in the public and private sector and that will result in a Fair Housing Plan.
 

The AI involves:

  • A comprehensive review of a State or Entitlement jurisdiction’s laws, regulations, and administrative policies, procedures, and practices
  • An assessment of how those laws, etc. affect the location, availability, and accessibility of housing
  • An assessment of conditions, both public and private, affecting fair housing choice for all protected classes
  • An assessment of the availability of affordable, accessible housing in a range of unit sizes.

Impediments to fair housing choice are:

  • Any actions, omissions, or decisions taken because of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, creed or source of income, which restrict housing choices or the availability of housing choices
  • Any actions, omissions, or decisions which have the effect of restricting housing choices or the availability of housing choices on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, creed or source of income.
