Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Tool
The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Data and Mapping Tool (AFFHT) provides publicly open data to assist community members and local leaders in setting local fair housing priorities and goals. The maps and tables in the AFFHT will help local governments, public housing agencies, states and insular areas to better facilitate community participation and local decision-making and to expand access to opportunity. Communities will use the AFFHT, in addition to local data and local knowledge, to determine the best strategies for integrating fair housing goals into their existing community development and housing planning processes.
The mission of the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) is to eliminate housing discrimination, promote economic opportunity, and achieve diverse, inclusive communities by leading the nation in the enforcement, administration, development, and public understanding of federal fair housing policies and laws.
