Where people live shapes their prospects for economic mobility, as well as access to quality education, affordable transportation, a healthy environment, and fresh, affordable food. For protected classes, such as people of color or people with disabilities, neighborhood or housing choices are often limited by factors such as public policies, disinvestment in neighborhoods, or discrimination in housing markets. Barriers to housing choice often result in concentrated poverty and a lack of access to resources such as proficient schools and jobs that pay a living wage.

Mosaic partners with our clients, residents, and stakeholders to understand local fair housing issues and provide actionable recommendations to address local fair housing needs and conditions. Our Analyses of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice and other fair housing studies incorporate the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing framework, using proactive strategies to address longstanding patterns of segregation, discrimination, and disinvestment.

How can we help:

  • Community engagement with a particular focus on reaching residents most vulnerable to fair housing issues.
  • Analysis of segregation, access to opportunity, housing affordability and accessibility, mortgage lending, zoning, and other fair housing concerns through GIS mapping and data visualization.
  • Tailored strategies for improving fair access to housing based on local conditions and national best practices.
  • Up-to-date understanding of quickly-evolving federal fair housing laws and regulations and their impact on HUD grantees.
