Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice

2018 - 2023 Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing 

Prince George’s County Department of Housing and Community Development and the City of Bowie are preparing the joint Analysis of Impediments (AI) to Fair Housing Choice submitted every five years as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Analysis of Impediments is required prior to the submission of the County and City of Bowie’s Consolidated Plan (2020-2024) to ensure that HUD grants funds affirmatively further fair housing in its use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME, and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).

Units of local government that receive HUD funds are also required to comply with the Fair Housing Act of 1968 which protects citizens from discrimination due to race, color, religion, sex, familial status, or national origin. The County and City of Bowie will examine policies and practices that: attempt to alleviate housing discrimination within their jurisdictions; promote fair housing choice for all persons; provide opportunities for all persons to reside in any given housing development; and promote housing for persons with disabilities.  

The purpose of the public meeting is to provide citizens with the opportunity to address and comment on the County and City of Bowie’s plan to expand housing choice prior to its submission deadline in the Spring of 2020. The County and the City of Bowie hereby solicit public comment from residents of the County and the City of Bowie.
