Harrisonburg Assessment of Fair Housing
The City of Harrisonburg, VA and the Harrisonburg Redevelopment and Housing Authority collaborated on one of the first Assessments of Fair Housing in the nation, marking a sea change in the way municipalities approach fair housing issues. M&L led an extensive public engagement process and analyzed data about segregation, poverty, neighborhood opportunity, persons with disabilities, publicly supported housing, and more. The goals resulting from the AFH process included expanding housing choice, increasing homeownership, improving transit, and strengthening enforcement. The accompanying metrics were used by the City and HRHA to guide strategic funding decisions for the next five years.
