Regulatory - Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing

The Fair Housing Act and related regulations work to prevent discrimination and increase housing choice.

The Housing and Community Development Act requires CDBG grantees to certify that all grants will be conducted and administered in conformity with the Fair Housing Act, and that grantees will affirmatively further fair housing (AFFH). All projects, whether housing, infrastructure, or economic development, are subject to this requirement.
