April is Fair Housing Month

The Lower Savannah Council of Governments (LSCOG) is conducting an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice as part of its obligations in receiving funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This short survey is part of the LSCOG’s efforts to obtain feedback from the public. By completing the survey you will help us assess fair housing issues in your community. Your input is important and will directly impact the decision making process.
