Fair Housing

Anoka County is part of the metro-wide Fair Housing Implementation Council that is working to address fair housing issues. It's a great time to refresh your Fair Housing knowledge.  ECHO Minnesota released a video called "A Good, Safe Place" highlighting the important things to remember in the landlord / renter relationship.

Addendum to the 2014-2019 Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing

The FHIC contracted with Mosaic Community Planning, LLC to conduct an Addendum to the FHIC’s 2014 Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing (AI Addendum). The Addendum specifically addresses housing discrimination, gentrification and displacement, barriers to housing choice, and the conditions of segregation and integration in the seven-county area that includes Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington Counties in Minnesota.

This fair housing planning is required of communities that receive certain funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Written comments were accepted March 1 through April 3, 2017. Several public meetings were held throughout the metro area March 14, 15 and 16.​ All documents are in PDF format.
