Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Statement

The San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) is committed to affirmatively furthering fair housing by promoting fair and equal housing opportunities for individuals living in the City of San Diego.

This commitment extends to all housing programs managed or owned by SDHC and to all grant-funded programs provided by SDHC.

It is the policy of SDHC to provide services without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, gender, familiar status or physical/mental disability.

To further affirmatively fair housing, SDHC will continue to do the following:

  1. Acknowledge those barriers to fair housing choice identified in the “San Diego Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing.”
  2. Take the necessary and appropriate actions to overcome the effects of those identified impediments.
  3. Document the actions taken to address the impediments and maintain records to reflect the actions and the analysis.

The promotion and exercise of fair housing requires freedom from the impediments of discriminatory rental, sales, lending and insurance practices, exclusionary zoning and land use practices, and other forms of barriers to housing choice. To facilitate the freedom from identified impediments and to banish those barriers, SDHC will strive to:

  • Remedy discrimination in housing through education, training and outreach
  • Promote fair housing rights and fair housing choice
  • Develop and manage housing of choice which is safe, affordable, sustainable and accessible
  • Improve access to services for persons with limited English proficiency

In reflection of its core values, SDHC is dedicated to providing excellence in housing services that manifests the highest standards of professional integrity and public accountability.

Through collaboration with other public and nonprofit agencies and organizations, SDHC will continue to foster residential responsibility, respect, and self-sufficiency in the full spirit of all civil rights to affirmatively further fair housing.
