As a recipient of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds from the State of Mississippi, the Town has executed grant agreements, which include a certification that the Town will affirmatively further fair housing.
In an effort to adhere to the requirements of the CDBG program and to affirmatively further fair housing, we urge you to become familiar with the Fair Housing Act. A booklet entitled “Fair Housing, Equal Opportunity For All” is an excellent document explaining fair housing. Copies of the Fair Housing Act and the HUD Fair Housing booklet are available at the offices of the Town Clerk located at 139 Main Street in Walnut Grove, Mississippi between the hours of 7:30 A.M. and 4:30 P.M., Tuesday through Friday.
The documents are also available on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Homes and Communities web site at www.hud.gov/offices/fheo/FHLaws/yourrights.cfm.
An informed citizenry is the key to the success of fair housing for all.
