In 1996, to formally address issues of housing, eight jurisdictions formed the Cabarrus/Iredell/Rowan HOME Consortium for the purpose of providing safe, decent and affordable housing to low- and moderate-income citizens. The members of the Cabarrus/Iredell/Rowan HOME Consortium are Cabarrus County, Iredell County, Rowan County, the city of Concord, the city of Kannapolis, the town of Mooresville, the city of Salisbury, and the city of Statesville. The Consortium also includes three community housing development organizations (CHDOs).
The long-term objective of conducting an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) is to make fair housing choice a reality for residents of the Cabarrus/Iredell/Rowan HOME Consortium through the prevention of discriminatory housing practices. Goals of the study are to analyze the fair housing conditions in the region; assess the degree to which fair housing choice is available for area residents; and suggest ways to improve the level of choice through continued elimination of discriminatory practices.
