Fair Housing Implementation Council: Request for Proposals to Prepare a Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice
Scope of Project
The Fair Housing Implementation Council (FHIC) is inviting proposals from qualified bidders to produce a Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). The AI will address fair housing barriers and solutions as defined by U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirements in the seven-county metro area that includes Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington Counties in Minnesota.
The AI must identify the causes for housing disparities, factors that reduce fair housing choice, the distribution of affordable housing (publicly funded and naturally occurring), displacement that disproportionately affects protected classes, the effects of gentrification on protected classes, integration and segregation, and disparities in access to opportunity as defined by HUD.
The goal of this framework is to provide a better mechanism for HUD grantees to build fair housing goals into their existing planning processes.
The consultant will be primarily responsible for ensuring the AI complies with HUD requirements, project management of the AI process to ensure timely completion, conducting a Public Sector Policy Analysis/Review, and coordinating with information provided by the Metropolitan Council (the Metropolitan Council will be providing an update to demographic, market analysis, and housing affordability data included in the Addendum to the 2014 Regional AI published in May 2017) and Engagement Consultant (to be determined) and incorporating their written materials into the overall AI.
The final proposal deadline is Monday, June 10, 2019.
Written questions may be directed to and proposals submitted to:
