Fair Housing Resource Center
Share |

The following resources are tools to assist your community with the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule compliance. In early 2018, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued a notice to the Federal Register delaying the deadline for Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) submissions until 2020. While local governments will not be required to submit an AFH using the current Assessment Tool, compliance under the AFFH is still required. This resource center is designed to help local governments access guidance, best practices, example documents and other resources needed for compliance with the AFFH rule.
