Action Requested
Board of Supervisors - Approve a Proclamation declaring April to be Fair Housing month in Yavapai County as part of the Community Development Block Grant Program.  Phil Bourdon, County Administrator
Brief Explanation of Need
If a local government is receiving Community Development Block Grant funds, it must document compliance with the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing requirements.  The words "affirmatively furthering fair housing" were first included in the Fair Housing Act of 1964, which, in title VI, prohibited discrimination in housing on the basis of race, color and national origin.  The Act also required the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer its programs in a manner that affirmatively promotes fair housing.

The Board of Supervisors proclaims April as Fair Housing month in Yavapai  County by approving a Proclamation urging all residents of the community to comply with and show their support for the letter and spirit of the Fair Housing Acts.
