1. Survey Introduction

 
The Colorado Department of Local Affairs, Division of Housing (DOH) and the Colorado Department of Human Services, Division of Supportive Housing and Homeless Programs (SHHP) request your participation in a brief survey designed to identify impediments to fair housing in Colorado.

You have been identified as an individual who is knowledgeable about housing conditions and community programs in Colorado. Your assistance is requested in determining if residents of Colorado have fair and reasonable choices in housing, or if there are impediments to fair choice.

In addition, the survey will gauge stakeholders' understanding of affirmatively furthering fair housing.
