Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing/Analyses of Impediments/Consolidated Plans/Fair Housing Planning

States, counties, and cities which receive HUD funds through —Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnership (HOME), —Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), and other federal programs have an obligation to affirmatively further fair housing, even when the funds are for non-housing programs. As part of documenting successes and barriers to achieving this goal, the jurisdiction must routinely complete a Consolidated Plan and an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing. The jurisdictions must allow for public input into these documents and also provide yearly updates on activities to address goals and/or identified impediments.
