One of the conditions of the TxLIHIS – Texas Appleseed – State of Texas Fair Housing settlement on hurricane recovery is that the state would update its Analysis of Impediments (AI) to Fair Housing. (See our post Introduction to an “Analysis of Impediments” for discussion of what an AI is). Today, HUD approved the first phase of Texas’s update of its Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing. The completion and approval of the Phase I AI is an important milestone in the disaster recovery process under the settlement agreement.
HUD’s letter approving the AI, which includes commentary and suggestions for improving Phase II of the analysis, is embedded below. (The embedded document can be enlarged for easier reading via the menu at the bottom of the embedded PDF)
