The Fair Housing Committee works to promote access to decent, safe and affordable housing for all segments of the community to the maximum extent feasible. The Fair Housing Committee accomplishes this through the study of issues, public education and advocacy. The Committee is comprised of 13 members. Four members are ex-officio appointments for 1-year terms and represent the Human Relations Commission, the Community & Economic Development Department, the Planning Board and the Framingham Housing Authority. The nine other members should be broadly representative of segments of the community, active and interested in the housing market.
