In conjunction with a fair housing study, required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and a condition for receiving Federal housing and community development funds, St Johns County is hosting two public meetings for residents to provide feedback.
The study examines policies and practices, both private and public, that may inadvertently lead to housing discrimination. The goals of the study are to identify whether barriers to fair housing exist in St Johns County in the rental and real estate markets, in mortgage lending, insurance, and the appraisal industry and proposes recommendations for addressing those barriers.
The meetings will be held at 12:00 noon on November 8 at the Health and Human Services Building, 200 San Sebastian View, and at 6:00 p.m. on November 8 at the Solomon Calhoun Community Center, 1300 Duval Street.St Johns County Communications
