Balancing increases in affordable housing in resource-rich areas with investments in low-income neighborhoods overview

HUD’s recent guidance on affirmatively furthering fair housing reminds cities, towns, and counties that they are required by federal law to create a balance between “place-based” and “mobility” strategies in order to overcome patterns of segregation and foster inclusive cities, towns, and counties. Some ways to balance place-based and mobility strategies include:
  • Start by analyzing the characteristics of your neighborhoods and creating strategies tailored to different types of neighborhoods.
  • Then determine whether the city needs to do more to enable low income and minority families to choose resource-rich neighborhoods, and work on the policy changes, collaborations, and infrastructure that will be needed to make that happen.
  • Finally, consider the context provided by the city’s housing market.
