So Get Involved

Period for Public Comment on the Draft AI: from September 4, 2019 through October 23, 2019

The Delaware State Fair Housing Consortium seeks your input to the draft of the Statewide Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI).

Established in 2017, the Consortium consists of the following jurisdictions that receive federal housing funds directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), as well as public housing authorities operating in those jurisdictions.

  • Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) (More Information) Includes Kent and Sussex Counties
  • New Castle County
  • Newark Housing Authority
  • City of Wilmington
  • Wilmington Housing Authority
  • City of Dover
  • Dover Housing Authority

The AI is an examination of structural barriers to fair housing choice and access to opportunity for members of historically marginalized groups protected from discrimination by the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA). The AI proposes goals to overcome fair housing issues and meaningful strategies that can be implemented to achieve progress towards each Consortium member’s obligation to affirmatively furthering fair housing.

COPY OF THE DRAFT AI will be available for review during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, beginning September 4, 2019 at the following offices:

  • New Castle County – Div. of Community Services, 77 Reads Way, New Castle, DE 19720
  • City of Wilmington – 800 N. French St, Wilmington, DE 19801
  • Newark Housing Authority – 313 E. Main St., Newark, DE 19711
