No. The goal of affirmative fair housing outreach is to achieve a condition in which individuals in the target population have a like range of housing choices available to them regardless of their race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability. For the purpose of PRA, HUD is asking grantees to evaluate outreach based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, and familial status. However, Grantees may choose to add any of the other demographic categories listed above in order to reach “least likely to apply” populations. Grantees may also find it necessary to reach out to a particular sub-population of one of these categories. HUD understands that data may be difficult to secure for the target population or the “least likely to apply” populations; however, the data that can be secured should be described in the Grantee’s Plan.
