Fair Housing Activity Statement Work Group
The Fair Housing Work Group meets to ensure the FHAST form can be reviewed and finalized for submission to the General Land Office. The Fair Housing Activity Statement is a form that assesses the community’s fair housing situation. Actions may include review of existing ordinances that deal with land use or housing and establishing processes to handle any fair housing complaints.
