Fair Housing in Columbia

Fair Housing in Columbia

Members of the Fair Housing Task Force

Randy Picht, executive director, Reynolds Journalism Institute

The City of Columbia annually receives federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for housing and construction purposes. Every five years, HUD requires cities that receive these funds to conduct an “Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice”. In order to comply with federal regulation, Columbia has established a Fair Housing Task Force to complete this analysis and to ensure that our city is affirmatively furthering fair housing.

Two members of the Fair Housing Task Force will discuss how they assess the city’s situation concerning fair housing and the availability of affordable housing.  They will also discuss the criteria/goals to be used for the next five-year period of HUD funding.

This program will be up on our website a few days later, or at
The show replays on CAT TV at 7:00 a.m. on Tues., Thurs. and Sat. and 7:30 p.m. on Mon., Wed., Fri. and Sun. CAT TV is found on Mediacom Channel 85, Charter Communications 983, and CenturyTel Prism 98.

A YouTube version will be sent to members.
