Analysis of Impediments
Before the state could access Round 2 funds, housing advocates filed a complaint to HUD in December 2009, alleging the planned distribution of funds was a violation of fair housing regulations and the state's Analysis of Impediments (AI) to fair housing was dated. The state chose to negotiate a conciliation agreement in order to move forward. As part of that agreement, the process for distributing funds was changed and the state agreed to update its AI. The AI for the hurricane-impacted area referred to as Phase 1 AI is updated. The remainder of the state will be udated in the future.
