Supporting Inclusive Communities Through Fair Housing Planning
**This colloquium has been updated to include an in depth discussion of the New AFFH Rule**
Are you a public or private sector fair housing planning practitioner? Would you like to learn more about Fair Housing Planning? If so, we invite you to join your colleagues - including community development and housing professionals, public and private sector leaders, & local government officials – for this immersive, interactive and engaging hands on program to learn about the latest fair housing planning developments, best practices & models that are being realized nationwide today. Actual case studies and barriers to fair housing choice—and possible solutions-- will be reviewed, useful fair housing resources and “tools of the trade” will be shared, and model solutions will be identified, discussed and applied by participants.
This advanced fair housing planning colloquium, approved by and funded with support from the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development’s Office of Fair Housing & Equal Opportunity Fair Housing Initiatives Program, will focus on how participants can collaborate and partner with other stakeholders to achieve equal housing opportunity.
Participants will learn about model programs and innovative approaches from fair housing experts and discuss how to comply with existing fair housing planning requirements, including the obligations of Community Development Block Grant program recipients and related HUD-funded initiatives that engage in government contracting, consulting, supporting, training and other services to ensure equal housing opportunity.
Participants may use HUD funds to attend this training with approval from their HUD contract officer. Please join the National Community Reinvestment Coalition at the IAOHRA Conference, August 26-27, 2013.
