Fair Housing

Each year, HUD requires Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement grantees to submit a certification that they will affirmatively further fair housing and that their grants will be administered in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 and the Fair Housing Act as amended in 1988. Cobb County will meet this obligation by performing an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). The AI assesses current fair housing initiatives, and identifies the impediments to fair housing choice in the county and describes actions the county will take to overcome them.
