DRAFT Action Plan

DRAFT Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice

Appendix A
 

The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, or AI, is a planning process for local governments,  public housing agencies and partner entities  to take meaningful actions to overcome historic patterns of segregation, promote fair housing choice, and foster inclusive communities that are free from discrimination.  The AI uses quantitative and qualitative data to assess impediments to fair housing choice and establishes proposed actions to address those impediments over a five-year period.   This AI study was conducted in 2019 and 2020 as a joint effort among Washington County (lead entity), the City of Beaverton, the City of Hillsboro, and incorporated and unincorporated areas within Washington County that receive Housing and Community Development funding from the County.

The second draft of the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan is also out for public comment in this period.

Including the appendices, the document is very large. Most of the documents contained in the appendices have been reviewed by the public over the last 6 months. We are recommending that reviewers begin with the core of the plan which includes the Executive Summary and Sections 1-4. The data used to complete the Consolidated Plan can be found in the supporting documents in Appendices A-I.

Translated copies (Spanish, Russian, Chinese, and Vietnamese) of the Executive Summary for both the Analysis of Impediments and the Consolidated Plan are available upon request by writing to cdbg@co.washington.or.us

The third document out for public comment is the Action Plan. This document describes the projects to be funded with federal funds in FY 2020. The public comment period runs from Wednesday, March 18 through Friday, April 17.
