Eugene's Fair Housing Plan
Each year, Eugene and Springfield receive funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. As recipients of these funds, Eugene and Springfield certify that they will “affirmatively further Fair Housing". Eugene and Springfield strive to assure that persons of a protected class have a choice in the location of their housing.
In order to uphold its commitment to affirmatively further fair housing and meet its federal obligation to engage in fair housing planning, Eugene and Springfield have jointly produced a document which examines laws, demographics related to population, housing and housing choice called the Fair Housing Plan. Eugene and Springfield conducted an “Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice” that identified road blocks affecting fair housing choice.
