Fair Housing Information

Fair Housing

Fair housing is a condition where all people, regardless of their personal characteristics, have equal access to housing of their choice that they can afford. As a recipient of federal funding, the County is required to “affirmatively further fair housing,” which means taking affirmative actions, in addition to combatting discrimination, that overcome patterns of segregation and foster inclusive communities free from barriers that restrict access to opportunity based on protected characteristics. Residents play a critical role in addressing housing discrimination by providing the County with feedback critical to the completion of our Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, a component of the County’s housing and community development planning efforts required by the federal government. Community participation is the key to crafting an effective plan to affirmatively further fair housing. 
We need your input! Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey for Macomb County’s 2023 - 2024 Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). The AI is a process that recipients of grant funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), such as states, local governments, and public housing agencies, undertake as part of their obligation to affirmatively further fair housing (AFFH) under the Fair Housing Act. Macomb County (County) is designated as an Urban County which is comprised of 20 local units of government including the Villages of Armada, New Haven, and Romeo; the Townships of Armada, Bruce, Chesterfield, Harrison, Lenox, Macomb, Ray, Richmond, Shelby and Washington; and the Cities of Center Line, Eastpointe, Fraser, Mount Clemens, New Baltimore, Richmond and Utica.

 The survey will be available through August 25, 2023.
