Housing GSO: Creating Opportunities to Build a Better Community is a 10-year plan we're creating with consultants HR&A Advisors to improve access to, and the condition of, affordable housing in Greensboro.
Our goal is to have all residents of Greensboro living where they want to live.
The Housing GSO plan outlines these factors:
1. Current need - the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI), which is linked to in the Stay Connected box, identifies the fair housing barriers Greensboro currently faces.
2. Future impact
HR&A Advisors and City staff will continue working with Greensboro residents, stakeholders, and community partners, to keep everyone involved and updated as we develop the critical factors of Housing GSO.
HR&A Advisors began work on Housing GSO in May 2019. They are tasked with developing the AI, the Five-Year Consolidated Plan, and a 10-year affordable housing plan. While the AI and Consolidated Plan are required by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), they will also set the stage for the next five years of funding priorities and housing goals in the City of Greensboro.
We will take the data gathered from these HUD-required reports and share the need for affordable housing in Greensboro to provide a meaningful path toward implementation. This will be Housing GSO: Creating Opportunities to Build a Better Community.
