The Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) and the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) are excited to announce the release of Los Angeles’ Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) Draft Plan. The City of Los Angeles invites you to review its Assessment of Fair Housing draft document and submit comments by September 29, 2017 during the 45-day public comment period.

The AFH Draft Plan identifies fair housing issues and develops strategies to reduce existing barriers throughout the City of Los Angeles. In conjunction with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) data, the City of L.A.’s local data, and feedback gathered during the City’s robust community participation process, the AFH Draft Plan outlines draft recommendations to promote fair housing choice and foster inclusive communities. The goals and priorities illustrated in the AFH Draft Plan will be used to inform future policy development in the City of Los Angeles.
