Horry County Partnership Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Plan Meetings

On September 9, 2016 in Events, General

Conway, South Carolina – Horry County has partnered with Myrtle Beach, Conway, the Myrtle Beach Housing Authority, the Conway Housing Authority and the Eastern Carolina Homelessness Organization to develop the Horry County Partnership Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Plan.  Fair Housing is a right protected by both federal and state law and entitles everyone to equal access housing regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, familial status, marital status, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, source of income, or any arbitrary reason.  Fair Housing applies to rental housing, homes for sale, advertising, home loans and home insurance.  Affirmative Fair Housing promotes fair housing and empowers and gives special assistance to groups that have been historically disadvantaged.

The AFFH Plan will include an analysis of current and historical fair housing issues within Horry County.  Public participation is a key component of developing a successful plan.  Throughout the month of September, Horry County and its partner agencies will conduct community meetings to discuss residents’ housing experiences and issues related to Fair Housing.  Residents are encouraged to participate by attending the meetings and/or completing the online survey found at http://www.horrycounty.org/Departments/CDBG.aspx.  The plan will be available for public review and comment in the spring of 2017.
