Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing
Local governments that receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds (the City of Naperville is a CDBG Entitlement Community) are required to affirmatively further the purposes of the Fair Housing Act. One component of affirmatively furthering fair housing is to analyze and set local fair housing priorities through the Assessment of Fair Housing report (formerly known as the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice). The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development updated the requirements and format for the Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH).
City of Naperville Assessment of Fair Housing
The City, working with Mullin & Lonergan Associates, Inc., a national fair housing consultant, prepared a new Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice
(AI). The AI assesses the conditions, both public and private, that affect fair housing choice and recommends strategies to reduce barriers to achieving fair housing. The AI was accepted by City Council on May 16, 2017.
