AFFH Task Force: Policy Recommendation Overview Session #3
July 14, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Task Force Recommendation overview session #3:
Please join the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Task Force for the third session in their summer series of in-depth explanation of draft policies to reverse long time patterns of housing segregation, displacement, and inequitable access to critical needs and opportunities.
- Attorney Bob Daemwood, of Regional Housing Legal Services, will present a policy proposal for dedicated investments in predominantly African-American neighborhoods, equal distribution of non CDBG capital funds, and the adoption of equitable development strategies
- Attorney Paul O’Hanlon, of the City County Disability Task Force, will present a proposal for local government to require landlords or real estate agents to inform applicants of their rights and duties regarding reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities
There will be detailed explanations and Q & A sessions at each overview session (May 2018-August 2018). Keep an eye on our full community calendar for more sessions. The summer series of overviews will be followed by a series of four public meetings in the fall in North, South, East, and West of Pittsburgh, for community members and organizational stakeholders to share their feedback on these draft policies and to suggest ideas for other needed policies. Finalized policy recommendations will be presented to the City of Pittsburgh in April of 2019.
Light refreshments will be offered. Free parking for the event is available behind One Smithfield St, with the driveway to the parking lot reached from Ft. Pitt Blvd. Press the button at the gate and let them know that you are attending a Fair Housing Task Force meeting.
