2020 Regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing

The City of Henderson is one of five cities in Clark County who participates in the development of a Regional Analysis of Impediments (RAI) to Fair Housing Choice, as required by HUD every five years.

The purpose of the RAI is to identify and evaluate potential obstacles or impediments, in both the private and public sector, to a person's ability to choose their residence free from discrimination, and to recommend actions that address such impediments in a 5-year Fair Housing Action Plan. As a recipient of federal funds awarded by HUD, Henderson is committed to affirmatively further fair housing.
