2016 Regional Housing Roundtables—AI/AFH Presentation

BBC's Heidi Aggeler

BBC’s Heidi Aggeler outlines HUD’s new Assessment of Fair Housing process.

The Regional Housing Roundtables sponsored by Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA) provide an opportunity for housing and community stakeholders to share information on needs, opportunities and challenges. Participants share updates on program goals, pending legislation or resources available to create housing that meets the needs of all community residents.

The Spring 2016 Roundtables also served as an opportunity to share information on the 2016 Analysis of Impediments/Assessment of Fair Housing (AI/AFH). In conjunction with key person interviews, data collection and a stakeholder surveys, IHFA used the Roundtable sessions as an opportunity for discussion of the preliminary findings of the 2016 process. IHFA and the Department of Commerce contracted with BBC Research and Consulting to conduct the analysis and produce a statewide report and planning document for Idaho’s non-entitlement areas.

BBC representatives presented the following information for discussion during the Spring Roundtables:
