The City and County of Los Angeles and their respective Housing Authorities are currently conducting a fair housing study known as the “Assessment of Fair Housing” (AFH). This study is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a condition for receiving federal housing and community development funds.
The goals of the study are to identify whether barriers to fair housing choice exist in Los Angeles County and City in the rental and real estate markets and the mortgage lending, insurance, and appraisal industries. Further, the study examines both private and public policies and practices that may intentionally or inadvertently lead to housing discrimination.
This AFH process includes soliciting the opinions of people throughout the County and City, as well as those involved in the housing industry, including renters and homeowners. As such, you are being asked to take part in this survey to provide your opinions and experiences regarding fair housing.
Your answers are anonymous and will only be reported in a compilation with other responses. The survey should take less than ten minutes. Thank you for your time.
