HUD has posted a six-part webcast explaining the required content of the new Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) established in the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule. The webcast defines fair housing “issues,” discusses their analysis, and explains the process of identifying and prioritizing fair housing “contributing factors.” The webcast also describes establishing fair housing priorities and goals based on the analysis of fair housing issues and the priority contributing factors. A case study is utilized to demonstrate the process of drafting an AFH.
- Part 1 introduces key terms and discusses the required content of the AFH (31 minutes).
- Part 2 discusses how to conduct a demographic summary and how to undertake an analysis of segregation (23 minutes).
- Part 3 covers the analysis of racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty (R/ECAPs) and disparities in access to opportunity (24 minutes).
- Part 4 discusses the analysis of disproportionate housing needs and explores AFFH considerations associated with publicly supported housing (28 minutes).
