The City of Albany, Georgia contracted Mosaic to prepare its Five-Year Consolidated Plan, Annual Action Plan, and Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice in 2015 and again in 2020. Additionally, Mosaic has assisted the City with other planning and community development projects, including development of Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA) plans and environmental review records for federally-funded activities. Our approach to these projects included several targeted engagement activities, including outreach through local schools, churches, and Albany State University. In total, over 200 local residents or other stakeholders participated in development of the plans.

In the City’s Consolidated Plan, Mosaic developed a housing and community development needs assessment, homelessness needs assessment, housing market analysis, and economic development review. Together with public input, these components served as the basis for identifying priority needs and preparing a strategy to address them over the Con Plan period. Albany’s priority needs included neighborhood revitalization, maintenance of the existing housing stock, increased access to affordable housing, homeless and special population needs, public facility improvements, and fair housing education.

With a major regulatory change related to fair housing pending in 2015, Mosaic looked ahead to the anticipated changes and worked to blend as many as possible into the City’s Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice. These components included an analysis of racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty (R/ECAPs), segregation and integration, access to opportunity, and an assessment of housing affordability and disproportionate housing needs.
