2020 Statewide Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice

A Consortium was established in 2017 to conduct a Statewide Analysis of Impediments (AI) to Fair Housing Choice and consists of all jurisdictions that receive federal housing funds directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), as well as public housing authorities operating in those jurisdictions.

  • Delaware State Housing Authority
    • Includes Kent and Sussex Counties
  • New Castle County
  • Newark Housing Authority
  • City of Wilmington
  • Wilmington Housing Authority
  • City of Dover
  • Dover Housing Authority

This AI examines structural barriers to fair housing choice and access to opportunity for members of historically marginalized groups protected from discrimination by the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA). The AI provides a planning process for the Consortium, individually and/or collaboratively, to take meaningful actions to overcome historic patterns of segregation, promote fair housing choice, and foster inclusive communities.
