Every few years the City of Colorado Springs completes a study on fair housing practices. There are federal funds on the line that the city can only access if it upholds those regulations. This year as part of the study, the city gathered stories from residents at an event called Close to Home using first-person interviews with residents. The stories will be submitted to supplement data gathered by the city in an effort to share experiences not captured by numbers and reports.
