Tennessee Fair Housing Survey

Please Respond by August 31, 2019


Whether you are a renter or homeowner, fair and affordable housing matters to everyone. The Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) and partners have released a survey for ALL Tennesseans to tell us about your housing experiences. THDA is conducting a study of fair housing in Tennessee called the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice. As the name suggests, we are looking to identify barriers faced to fair and affordable housing choices and determine solutions to minimize those barriers.

All Tennesseans are encouraged to click the link below and share with friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, and clients. The survey is available in English and Spanish. Please respond by August 31, 2019.
