Piedmont Triad Regional Assessment of Fair Housing
A regional effort, this study covered the Cities of Burlington, Greensboro, and High Point, and the Surry HOME Consortium, all of which receive federal funds directly from HUD, as well as 67 other municipalities and 12 counties within the Triad region that are eligible for HUD funding through the state. From our data analysis, M&L identified a clear disconnect between concentrated areas of poor, non-white households and communities with relative “opportunity.” Among the priorities identified in the AFH to increase housing choice were expanded public transportation, sustainable employment opportunities close to needy neighborhoods, and more affordable and accessible housing for both renters and homeowners in higher opportunity areas.
