San Bernardino County is updating its Consolidated Plan and working on a fair housing study called an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing choice. These plans are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the county to receive federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

The 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.

Consolidated Plan topics of discussion include:

• Citizen participation and consultation

• Affordable housing

• Public and assisted housing

• Homeless and other special needs

• Public facilities and services

• Barriers to affordable housing

The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) will identify barriers to equal access to housing and neighborhood opportunities and will propose strategies to overcome those barriers.

AI topics of discussion:

• Public investment

• Access to opportunity

• Land use and zoning

• Housing

• Housing discrimination and hate crimes

• Home Mortgage Disclosure Act

The community’s opinions and perceptions are an important part of this study, and all interested residents are invited to participate, the county said. Input from residents will provide essential information to local policymakers, staff, housing providers, lenders, and affordable housing advocates.
