OSAH Campaign Releases New Podcast Episode on Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing

The Opportunity Starts at Home campaign released a new podcast episode, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.” The thirty-ninth installment in OSAH’s podcast series, the new episode features a discussion with Justin Steil, a professor of law and urban planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

In the episode, Professor Steil discusses the origins of his interdisciplinary approach to housing policy, the historical context surrounding the enactment of the “Fair Housing Act,” and the decades of failed implementation related to the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) mandate. The discussion also addresses the progress made under the AFFH rule established during the Obama administration and the rule's prospects for revival during the Biden administration.
