Atlanta + Fulton County Consolidated Plan and Fair Housing Study

Does your neighborhood have access to good schools, jobs, healthcare, housing, and other essential resources?

The City of Atlanta and Fulton County are working together to update their individual Consolidated Plans and to prepare a joint Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice. These plans are required by the U.S. Department of  Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and address local and regional needs related to housing, economic and community development, and homelessness. 

A Consolidated Plan assesses the current housing market, discusses characteristics of the county’s population, identifies community improvement priorities, and outlines a five-year plan to fund and implement them using funds received from HUD under the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnerships Act (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and - in the City's case - the Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS (HOPWA) programs.

The Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) identifies barriers to equal access to housing and neighborhood opportunities and proposes strategies to overcome those barriers.

The community's opinions and perceptions are an important part of these planning processes, and everyone is invited to participate.Your input will provide essential information to local policymakers, city and county staff, housing providers, social service providers, lenders, and affordable housing advocates.
