Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI)

As a recipient of federal housing and community development funds, the City of Rancho Cordova is required to conduct an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) and to periodically review that analysis and update it as necessary. The AI is one of the several ways in which a grantee must meet its obligation to affirmatively further fair housing. This obligation applies to the City of Rancho Cordova as a recipient of federal CDBG funds.

The analysis summarizes the state of fair housing and the conditions which might affect the ability of a household to access the housing of its choice. This analysis is organized into several sections providing an introduction to the document, a review of the previous analysis, information on the character of the community, and housing market trends. It then has several sections that discuss specific elements of fair housing choice. It concludes with a summary analysis and the identification of impediments to fair housing choice with recommended actions to address them.

HUD requires jurisdictions that receive CDBG funding to produce reports. These reports include:

  • Annual Action Plans, which describe how funds will be spent in the upcoming program year.
  • Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports (CAPER), which summarize how the funded activities performed over the past program year.
  • Consolidated Plan is a longer-term (5-year) strategic plan that determines how the City will spend CDBG funds and other community development monies, and identifies strategies to respond to community identified needs throughout the next five years.
