Community Meetings for Quad Cities Fair Housing Study

The Cities of Davenport, Moline, and Rock Island are preparing a regional fair housing study. This study, called “Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice,” will discuss patterns of race, housing, and poverty; access to opportunity; and housing barriers in our local Quad Cities area. It’ll also outline strategies the cities may take to improve housing choices for their residents.

The opinions and perceptions of local residents are an important part of this study. To provide input, all residents are invited to attend one of three public meetings and participate in a survey. Meetings will be held at the following dates, times, and locations, and are open to the general public. Refreshments will be served and children are welcome.

These issues would be relevant to the discussion:

  • What types of housing are available in your community?
  • Does your neighborhood have access to good schools, jobs, transportation, healthcare, and grocery stores?
  • What barriers limit the range of housing option available to you?
  • Do you know what to do if you feel you have experienced housing discrimination?
