The County of Chesterfield is conducting a Fair Housing Study to analyze the impediments to fair housing within the Chesterfield community. This study is required by HUD for receipt of federal funds for housing and community development. Chesterfield seeks to receive public input on fair housing issues from the perspective of the community and priority needs for the FY2016-FY2020 consolidated plan.
Housing discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, or disability is illegal by federal law. Virginia’s fair housing law includes elderliness as a protected class. Elderliness means anyone 55 and older.
