The document provides an overview of the fair housing situation in Fairfax County, with findings and recommendations to overcome the effects of identified impediments. The AI also provides a comprehensive review of a jurisdiction, its laws, regulations, and administrative policies, procedures, and practices and an assessment of how this affects the location, availability, and accessibility of housing. In addition, the document assesses how conditions, both private and public, affect fair housing choice.
