Regional Housing Assessment

The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) Research Team is working with participating local jurisdictions, interested parties, and the public to assess fair housing challenges and ultimately provide guidance to program participants in furthering fair housing. The assessment consists of a comprehensive analysis examining not only housing-related challenges but also related to employment, transportation, and accessibility to opportunities.

To perform that comprehensive assessment, and in accordance to the AFFH planning process, the research is divided into three interrelated parts: (1) Data Collection and Fair Housing Analysis; (2) Community Participation; and (3) Development of Goals and Priorities.

  • Identify housing and living patterns of integration and segregation, racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty, disproportionate housing needs, and disparities in access to opportunity
  • Identify contributing factors that cause, perpetuate, or increase fair housing issues
  • Facilitate public hearings and conduct outreach activities designed to encourage and broaden meaningful public participation
  • Provide continuous information of research related findings
  • Prioritization of contributing factors and related fair housing issues
  • Provide guidance in meeting fair housing duties
