This report commissioned by the Fair Housing Implementation Council (Twin Cities Metro Region) to examine the impediments or barriers to fair housing that affect protected classes within a geographic region. This involved a thorough examination of a variety of sources related to housing, affirmatively furthering fair housing, the fair housing delivery system and housing transactions, which affect people who are protected under fair housing law.
Sources for the report included census data; home mortgage industry data; federal, state and local housing complaint data; surveys of housing industry experts and stakeholders; and other housing information. It also included an active and involved public input and review process via direct contact with stakeholders, focus group sessions with housing experts, public forums to collect input from citizens, distribution of draft reports for citizen review and formal presentation of findings.

The Public Housing Agency (PHA) Plan is a comprehensive guide to a public housing agency's policies, programs, operations and strategies for meeting local housing needs and goals.
There are two parts to the PHA Plan including the 5-Year Plan, submitted by PHA's to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) every fifth PHA fiscal year, and the Annual Plan, submitted to HUD once every year.
PHA's that administer public housing or the Housing Choice Voucher Program are required to submit a PHA Plan. This document also serves as the application for the Capital Fund Program, the funding source for operation and maintenance of public housing units.

The Dakota County Community Development Agency (CDA) receives its funding for the Housing Choice Voucher Program from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The CDA enters into an Annual Contributions Contract with HUD to administer the program requirements on behalf of HUD. The CDA must ensure compliance with federal laws, regulations and notices and must establish policy and procedures to clarify federal requirements to ensure consistency in program operation.
To do this, the CDA has an Administrative Plan for the Housing Choice Voucher Program which is required by HUD. The purpose of the plan is to establish policies for carrying out the programs in a manner consistent with HUD requirements and local goals and objectives contained in the CDA's Public Housing Agency Plan. The Housing Choice Voucher Program Administrative Plan is updated on an as-needed basis.
