Athens-Clarke County is committed to identifying and addressing impediments as they relate to fair housing in our community.
What does 'Impediments to Fair Housing' mean?
Impediments to Fair Housing means any action or decision that a person or company makes that can stop someone from receiving housing based on their race, color, ancestry, national origin, gender, religion, disability, marital status, familial status, sexual orientation, or other factor.
Affirmatively Further Fair Housing
Athens-Clarke County's Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) is working diligently to ensure that ACC Gov stays in compliance with HUD's requirements to receive entitlement grants. One of those requirements includes submitting a certification to affirmatively further fair housing.
