Housing Reports and Plans
Every five years, the City of Madison is required to complete an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, which assesses disparities in and barriers to housing access and production for residents based on protected class status. This report helps guide equitable decisions in how the City spends funds to support housing and planning initiatives, helping inform ways to make Madison a more sustainable and equitable City for everyone.
The Biennial Housing Report is a comprehensive analysis of housing needs and strategies for implementation across separate market segments. Though last written in 2016, this report is still influential in informing local planning and policy. The majority of the data and strategies in this report are now carried forward in other reports and plans – namely the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, Housing Snapshot Report, Equitable Development Report, and the Imagine Madison Comprehensive Plan.
(new plan forthcoming in 2022)Developed in consultation with the Homeless Services Consortium (the local Continuum of Care), this plan identifies the goals, objectives and strategies that, if fully implemented, would lead toward the elimination of homelessness in our community.
The Housing Snapshot Report details high-level trends and needs of the City’s housing market, while also highlighting outcomes of key City initiatives. Because the housing market continues to change, and needs of residents change with it, this report allows residents and City officials an up-to-date overview of key data points on an annual basis. An updated report is published by the end of the 3rd quarter annually.
