The Town of Bloomsburg is a grantee of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME grant funds. We are required to annually undertake a new optional Fair Housing action to comply with the State’s Fair Housing requirements to execute an activity which affirmatively furthers fair housing. For Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2021, a Fair Housing Hub was created on SEDA-COG’s website to meet the Town of Bloomsburg obligation to affirmatively further fair housing. This webpage can be found at https://seda-cog.org/ under the “For Residents” tab and then click on “Fair Housing Educational Guide”.
The purpose of the webpage is to raise awareness regarding the right to fair housing choice without facing discrimination. By utilizing this tool, residents will gain knowledge on fair housing laws and rights, affordable housing options including rent and mortgage and utilities assistance, accessible housing options, housing quality, bias and discrimination, financial literacy and preparedness, and access to opportunities.
