North Texas Regional Fair Housing Assessment Meetings

North Texas Cities and Housing Authorities have planned follow up public input meetings for the North Texas Regional Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH). The purpose of the AFH 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.

The AFH also assesses whether housing options are realistically available to people of varying backgrounds in integrated areas with access to opportunity. Input from advocates and the public was gathered during the first round of meetings and focus groups. They have used that input, along with local data, to formulate goals and strategies to address the fair housing issues that were found. These goals and strategies will be presented at this meeting, and all members of the public, advocates and members of protected classes are encouraged to attend and give their feedback.

COMMUNITY FOR PERMANENT SUPPORTED HOUSING encourages you to attend one of these meetings to ensure your voice is heard.

The meeting times and locations are posted here:

There is also a short online survey. Here is the link,


In 2017, COMMUNITY FOR PERMANENT SUPPORTED HOUSING joined the North Texas Regional Housing Assessment Team to conduct two Focus Groups to find out what types of housing individuals with disabilities want. Their parents also participated in these discussions. Here is a 3 minute video that explains the effort.

This year, COMMUNITY FOR PERMANENT SUPPORTED HOUSING will continue to address affordable housing for citizens with disabilities in community-based, safe, neighborhoods. Services to live independently and community amenities are also necessary so that these citizens are able to work and socialize in the communities they are familiar with.

CPSH welcomes your collaboration on moving this mission forward. Please contact me if you'd like to discuss working together or have questions about our work.
