In spring 2020, six cities and counties in the Greater Richmond and Tri-Cities Region began a joint study to identify barriers to fair housing choice. Those partners include the counties of Chesterfield and Henrico, and the cities of Richmond, Petersburg, Hopewell, and Colonial Heights.* This joint study represents a commitment by these jurisdictions to take meaningful actions to promote fair housing choice, foster inclusive communities, and ensure that housing markets are free from discrimination.
This study will be heavily informed by community engagement that represents the needs of people living and working in the Greater Richmond/Tri-Cities region. This week we are launching a survey in Spanish and English of residents. This survey will identify residents’ most acute housing needs and barriers to housing choice.
I am writing to ask for your help in distributing this survey to your clients, constituents, colleagues, members of organizations, family members, and friends. We want to be sure that all types of residents in the region are represented in the survey.
The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete, can be done on a smartphone or tablet, or by phone. Participants will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Visa gift card at the end of the survey! Please take the survey below before August 31, 2020.
