Assessment of Fair Housing – April 2017

The Chester County Department of Community Development (DCD) and the Housing Authority of Chester County (HACC) reaffirmed their commitment to uphold the Fair Housing Act’s provision to affirmatively further fair housing through their submission of the joint Chester County Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH), 2018-2022. The AFH identifies goals and actions established to overcome patterns of segregation and foster inclusive communities free from barriers that restrict access to opportunity based on protected characteristics, including: race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, and disability.

The Action Plan, which outlines the goals and activities identified in the AFH, can be viewed by clicking here. Staff from DCD and HACC will meet regularly to monitor the progress and discuss activity programming through the 5-years of the AFH.

DCD is proud to submit the AFH during Fair Housing Month. More information about the AFH is available on DCD’s Fair Housing page.
