The Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) is responsible for the administration approximately $20 million in federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As the administrator of federal funds, ADOH is required to submit a certification to HUD that it is affirmatively furthering Fair Housing. This means it will: 1) conduct an analysis of impediments to Fair Housing choice; 2) take appropriate actions to overcome the effects of impediments identified through that analysis; and 3) maintain records reflecting the analysis and actions.
ADOH is in the process of completing its 2020 Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice. The current analysis includes areas outside of Maricopa and Pima counties, the Cities of Casa Grande, Douglas, Flagstaff, Lake Havasu City, Prescott, Sierra Vista, and Yuma, and unincorporated Pinal County.
As part of the process, we are conducting a survey to better understand fair housing concerns and to learn how we can better overcome those concerns.
The survey is available in both English and Spanish:
State of Arizona 2019 Fair Housing Survey
Encuesta de Vivienda Justa de parte de el Estado de Arizona
In addition to completing the survey, we encourage you to promote the survey by posting survey notices in your office and/or distributing information about the survey in your customer and resident newsletters. The survey will be open until August 23, 2019.
