Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Accessibility
The 2011 Idaho Analysis of Impediments (AI) is a report commissioned by Idaho Housing and Finance Association and the Idaho Department of Commerce. Work on the analysis and the statewide stakeholder survey was performed by BBC Research and Consulting. The 2011 AI represents Idaho’s most comprehensive and robust study to date, and analyzes policies and procedures involving land-use, lending, investment patterns, and complaint data for the state of Idaho. Where concerns or potential impediments are identified, best practices are recommended to support state and local governments, housing providers and professionals as they work to increase diversity and reduce discrimination, disparate impact, and liability.
Please Note. The 2011 AI is based on point-in-time data available to researchers through late 2011. It is understood that:
Policies and procedures in place during this period are subject to change;
Data was assumed to be current and accurate at the time of collection; actual practices or policies should be independently verified prior to any formal action; and
County level data should not in any way be interpreted as reflecting policies or practices of housing providers, municipalities or other independent jurisdictions or organizations located within a county.
The purpose of this document is to identify and analyze available data in order to recommend best practices within the context of current law and perceived or potential impediments to fair housing. It is not intended to imply or affirm specific actions or omissions. Direct comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org / TTD 800-545-1833 Ext.400.
