Public meetings seek feedback on fair housing

Attend one of the upcoming public meetings to find out more about the ongoing Assessment of Fair Housing and to provide comments on the process.

The Assessment of Fair Housing is a requirement for the City of Fort Worth and Fort Worth Housing Solutions so they can continue to receive federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
