Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice

In accordance with the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, each entitlement community such as Pittsburgh must “affirmatively further fair housing.” To demonstrate that an entitlement community is “affirmatively furthering fair housing,” it must prepare an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice which identifies any impediments to fair housing choice and what steps it will take to affirmatively further fair housing. The City of Pittsburgh performs this analysis and prepares an Assessment of Fair Housing every five years.
