In order to assist communities in furthering fair housing, the Land Office created a Fair Housing Activity Statement – Texas (FHAST). This form is required for all Hurricanes Ike/Dolly Round 2.2 applications for funding. It is intended to demonstrate the commitment by communities to review the Phase 1 AI, and implement action plans for the improvement of fair housing in their area. The Land Office will monitor the actions that communities have agreed to take in order to address impediments to fair housing as detailed in their adopted FHAST Form.
Suspected Fair Housing Act violations can be reported to the Civil Rights Division of the Texas Workforce Commission (www.twc.state.tx.us) or the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD.gov).
