Equitable Development: Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing and Policies for Inclusion

Communities have an obligation to guard and promote the right to fair housing and equal opportunity for every resident. This workshop highlights local government efforts in Florida to affirmatively further fair housing using federal, state, and local fair housing laws to promote inclusive and equitable communities across the state. Participants will review tools available to support fair housing, including: building equity in traditionally underserved markets, creating partnerships between the media and local government, and development of an inclusionary zoning policy. Participants will also review the latest HUD fair housing requirements for entitlement jurisdictions.
