Ogden City is seeking public comment to the City’s proposed Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing (AI). The AI plan identifies impediments to Fair Housing Choice in our community and proposes actions the city will undertake to address those identified impediments. The goals of the AI will be included in the City’s 2021-2025 Five Year Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan FY21 and subsequent Annual Action Plans.
This data is provided to assist in planning and developing strategies to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing choice.
Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice 2010-2015
An Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) is a comprehensive review of municipal housing, economic, and transportation conditions, as well as public and private sector policies in order to ensure that housing choices and opportunities for all persons in a community are available. Under the HOME and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) statutes, the AI is a document required by HUD as part of the Five Year Consolidated Plan 2016-2020 (ConPlan). The city must certify to HUD that an AI was conducted and fair housing action steps are being implemented. Goals and objectives are designed to identify and mitigate obstacles to fair housing choice. Many of these are also included in the five year ConPlan.
Results of the 2015 Analysis
Since the last Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice was completed in 2015, Ogden City has actively worked to meet the objectives outlined in the Action Plan and to find ways to mitigate or remove barriers to fair housing. Ogden City has worked with the Utah Fair Housing Forum, Ogden Housing Authority and the Disability Law Center to develop a cooperative approach to develop fair housing choices through the region.
