The City of Columbia, in partnership with Central Missouri Community Action, the Columbia Housing Authority, Mid-Missouri Legal Services, and the University of Missouri, has attempted to solve this problem by collaborating to create a new website. was created to serve as a comprehensive online resource for communicating fair housing initiatives, related laws and ordinances, and information regarding consumer housing useful to renters and rental property owners in the mid-Missouri area. The site, now available, was designed by employees at Central Missouri Community Action and was funded through the City of Columbia’s Community Development Block Grant program

Information for the site was collected from a variety of sources including information specific to each partner organization tailored for the mid-Missouri area. An intern site coordinator, made possible through a partnership with the Truman School of Public Affairs, was responsible for the creation of the site’s content.

The coalition will maintain the site and is planning to expand the site to include additional information specific to Boone County including consumer information on rental housing energy efficiency and utility consumption information.
