As part of the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Report (required by HUD), The City of Portland was tasked with collecting and analyzing data that identifies barriers to housing choice, and with developing a report that outlines strategies to mitigate the identified barriers. The report identified a number of key barriers to exercising housing choice, including a general lack of understanding by housing consumers and housing providers of Fair Housing law, as well as the need for a clear, focused fair housing champion.Look here for activities related to the Fair Housing Advocacy Committee and the update to the Analysis of Fair Housing Impediments for the 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan. Tell us about your housing experiences in the Portland/vancouver Metro area.
