The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments has released a Regional Fair Housing Plan to help shape the future of housing in the region. The plan identifies actions, both for Fairfax County and the Washington, D.C. region to:
Increase access to housing,
Increase access to all neighborhoods,
Increase fair housing enforcement,
Remove barriers to housing choice,
Increase housing choice for persons with disabilities.
Local jurisdictions have a responsibility to affirmatively further fair housing and prevent discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of housing so that all residents can choose to live in communities with access to quality schools, jobs, and transportation. The Regional Fair Housing Plan is designed to help ensure that goals are consistent, collaborative, and more likely to be effective among the jurisdictions in the Washington metro area.
