Chesterfield Community Enhancement Wants Your Opinion on Fair Access to Housing in Chesterfield

Chesterfield CouRichmond VA Survey Flyernty has joined with Henrico County, Chesterfield County, Colonial Heights, Hopewell, Petersburg, and Richmond to examine barriers to housing choice and economic opportunity.

This joint study represents a commitment by Chesterfield County to take meaningful actions to promote fair housing choice, foster inclusive communities, and ensure that housing markets are free from discrimination.

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.

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.
