Do our citizens have access to affordable housing?
Does our housing mix reflect the needs of our citizens?
Do we have zoning/ordinances that limit housing options?
Since 2010, WFN Consulting has completed 20 Analyses of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice and Fair Housing and Equity Assessments for different client jurisdictions from coast to coast. Each one of these engagements includes a targeted, Fair Housing training component.
WFN completed more AIs than our competitors, placing our consultants in the most COMPLEX, CHALLENGING, and POLITICALLY-CHARGED AI and Fair Housing scenarios. No firm is better prepared to assist clients through the practical realities of today’s dynamic and daunting Fair Housing environment.
Every engagement and project in our portfolio has allowed our consultants to continue to broaden the depth and breadth of their own subject matter expertise. From data compilation, analysis and public participation strategies to issue assessment and goal setting, WFN has developed a best practice, industry-standard approach for each step of the planning process. These engagements have exposed our trainers to the intricacies and complexities of the Fair Housing climate, allowing them to provide real-time, relevant training tools for our clients.
Over the last 10 years, WFN has created and led local, regional, and national trainings and seminars on topics surrounding Fair Housing as well as other programmatic and regulatory issues of concern to the Community Development practitioner. Additionally, WFN has provided training sessions as part of local governments’ Fair Housing Education and Outreach Plans.
