City of Anderson Community Development Department Fair Housing Analysis Survey

Since 1985 Anderson has received funds from the United Stated Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to develop vibrant viable communities. Continued funding requires planning, participation, and accountability. This survey is a part of the process. Your responses will help us know what residents believe or know about fair housing, its impact on one's life, and the impact of illegal discrimination. It will help us know what has and should be done to support housing choice to affirmatively further fair housing. Please use the lined space available at the end of the survey for further comments. Thank you for taking the time to complete the Fair Housing Choice Survey.
