The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination through the process of “affirmatively furthering fair housing” (AFFH). The final AFFH rule is intended to provide local governments and public housing authorities more effective means to further the purpose of the Fair Housing Act.
In accordance with the AFFH planning process, the Regional Housing Assessment is divided into three interrelated parts: (1) Data Collection and Fair Housing Analysis; (2) Community Participation; and (3) Development of Goals and Priorities.
