The Fair Housing and Equity Assessment in Rural and Smaller Metropolitan Regions: Reflections on Implementation of the FHEA from the Field

This report provides an overview of the HUD’s Fair Housing and Equity Assessment (FHEA) as carried out by rural and smaller metropolitan regions. It is based on a review of FHEA documents and interviews with the grantees responsible for the preparation of the FHEA. The intent of the report is to inform federal agencies and equity advocates how rural and smaller metropolitan areas can plan for equitable opportunity. (November 2015)
