Assessment of Fair Housing

The City of Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, and the Housing Authority of Winston-Salem (HAWS) completed an Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) and the AFH was accepted by Housing and Urban Development in November 2017. This study discusses fair housing issues and affordable housing needs throughout the county. It also outlines strategies the City, County, and HAWS plan to take to improve fair housing. The study is required by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development for public housing authorities and jurisdictions that receive community development and affordable housing grant funds.
