Analysis of Impediments

​Before the state could access Hurricanes Ike/Dolly Round 2 funds, complaints about the distribution of funds and the Analysis of Impediments (AI) to fair housing prompted an agreement that changed the distribution process and updated the AI for the Phase 1 AI hurricane-impacted area the remainder of the state was updated in 2013.

​Housing advocates filed a complaint to HUD in December 2009, alleging the planned distribution of funds was a violation of fair housing regulations and the state's Analysis of Impediments (AI) to fair housing was dated.  The state chose to negotiate a conciliation agreement in order to move forward.  As part of that agreement, the process for distributing funds was changed and the state agreed to update its AI.  The AI for the hurricane-impacted area referred to as Phase 1 AI is updated.  The remainder of the state was updated in 2013.
