Fair Housing Implementation Council

Contact us

The ad hoc Fair Housing Implementation Council (FHIC) was established in 2002 to coordinate efforts of its participating members to comply with their obligations to affirmatively further fair housing throughout the Twin Cities metro housing market area. Funding members administer federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funding, as well as other Fair Housing programs which require them to certify to HUD that they will affirmatively further fair housing through the operation of their housing and community development programs as well as fair housing activities to overcome impediments. The FHIC also has representation by a number of area-wide agencies and organizations interested in affirmatively furthering fair housing.

Funding members of the FHIC include the counties of Anoka and Hennepin, the Community Development Agencies of Carver, Dakota, Scott and Washington Counties, the Metro HRA (Metropolitan Council), Ramsey County HRA, the Cities of Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Minneapolis, Plymouth, Saint Paul, and Woodbury.
