Repeated flood events have significantly magnified barriers to fair housing and impacted members of protected classes. Advanced preparation and planning is critical during hurricane season and throughout the year so that vulnerable Houstonians may make a full recovery after a flood event. HCDD is seeking consultants, including non-profit organizations, to provide outreach, education, information, and advertising addressing fair housing and hurricane preparedness or risk reduction. The program's target audiences are historically underserved populations, including African-Americans, Hispanics, seniors, persons with disabilities, immigrants including populations with Limited English Proficiency, and low- and/or moderate-income households. The overall goal of this initiative is to support outreach and engagement at the neighborhood level and increase fair housing and resilience knowledge of residents.
