              Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI)

              The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) Report is a planning process for local governments and public housing agencies to take meaningful actions to overcome historic patterns of segregation, promote fair housing choice, and foster inclusive communities that are free from discrimination. The AI Report is required of states, counties, cities, and public housing authorities that receive federal housing and community development funding. The goal of the AI Report is to help communities analyze challenges to fair housing choice and establish goals and priorities to address fair housing barriers. The AI Report was utilized to help inform the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Consolidated Plan.

              The 2020 AI summarizes the state of fair housing and the conditions which might affect the ability of a household to access the housing of its choice. It is organized into several sections providing an executive summary; information on the demographic patterns of the region; an analysis on disproportionate housing needs and publicly supported housing; an examination into access to opportunity; discussion on the housing experience and access to opportunity for residents with disabilities; and a report of community engagement findings. It concludes with discussion on the goals and recommended strategies for regional partners to take to address fair housing and economic opportunity barriers.

              The study was conducted for the Sacramento Valley region as a joint effort among the following entities: the cities of Citrus Heights, Davis, Elk Grove, Folsom, Galt, Isleton, Rancho Cordova, Rocklin, Roseville, Sacramento, West Sacramento, and Woodland; the Housing Authority of Sacramento; Sacramento County; the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency; and Yolo County Housing.
