HOME Program Minority Concentration Data 2011-12 – (Microsoft Excel)

In response to Recommendation 8-4 of the draft Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing (AI), HOME has compiled data which illustrates whether HOME-funded activities completed in FY 11-12 are located in areas of minority concentration. This data is available at the link directly above. For purposes of this dataset, an activity is considered to be located in an area of minority concentration if minorities are over-represented in that Census Tract by more than 10 percentage points compared to the county as a whole.
