The Fair Housing Advocacy Committee (FHAC) is a strong advocate in Multnomah County for the implementation of strategies that affirmatively further fair housing and hold the jurisdictional partners of Multnomah County accountable. FHAC is sponsored by Multnomah County, Gresham and the City of Portland, and was formed in response to actions outlined in the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice Report.
The committee is charged with developing a work plan that includes the review of data, the review and endorsement of best practices, the coordination of public information campaigns, the regular review of enforcement data, suggestion of policies for adoption by jurisdictions, and advocating for resources that will support effective approaches to furthering fair housing.
See FHAC, July 8, 2014 meeting agenda and presentation notes below. To learn more about the Portland Urban League’s, “Fair Chance for All Campaign, Reduce Barriers, Ban the Box”, visit their website at http://www.fairchanceforall.com/.
