The City of Iowa City invites you to join the discussion as part of its Fair Housing Study.
The process begins with a kick-off event from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, in the Senior Center Assembly Room, 28 S. Linn St. The meeting will help the City identify barriers to fair housing choice in the community and develop strategies to address those issues. All are welcome to attend, and no RSVP is necessary.
Fair housing is the right to choose housing free from unlawful discrimination. Renters, homebuyers, and those seeking financing or insurance in Iowa City are protected from housing discrimination based on age, color, creed, disability, gender identity, marital status, familial status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, presence or absence of dependents or public assistance as a source of income.
The study is part of an ongoing effort to further fair housing choice in Iowa City. Its findings will help the City take meaningful actions to overcome historic patterns of segregation, promote fair housing choice, and foster an inclusive community free from discrimination. Survey completion is expected in May 2019.
