FOR RESIDENTS OF HIDALGO COUNTY
In accordance with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the County of Hidalgo Urban County Program (UCP) hereby announces the release of the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Community Survey. The survey will assist in the development of a fair housing plan, an assessment of fair housing issues and contributing factors, and an identification of fair housing priorities and goals. Information obtained will be included in the Assessment of Fair Housing document compiled by Hidalgo County and the Cities of Edinburg, Mission, McAllen and Pharr as well as the Hidalgo County Public Housing Authority and the Public Housing Authorities of the Cities of Alamo, Donna, Edinburg, Edcouch, Elsa, La Joya, McAllen, Mercedes, Mission, Pharr, San Juan and Weslaco.
The purpose of the AFFH Community Survey is to assess whether individuals and families have the information, opportunity, and options to live where they choose without unlawful discrimination related to race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, or disability and assess whether housing options are realistically available in integrated areas and areas with access to opportunity.
The AFFH Community Survey is available and will close on Friday, July 14, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. All Hidalgo County residents are encouraged to participate in this survey.
