Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (Boston)

NCRC National Training Academy

Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Training

 

 (9:00 AM-4:30 PM EST)

 

Course Description and Learning Objectives:

 

In this FREE two-day training, community development practitioners, housing professionals, and local government officials will learn about Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) requirements and regulations that spell out the fair housing obligations of states, cities and towns across America.

Every public and private agency that receives Community Development Block Grant funds or related support from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has an obligation to “affirmatively further fair housing.” This course will focus on how those communities receiving funds can ensure compliance with the Fair Housing Act, HUD’s proposed new AFFH rule and related regulations, and collaborate with stakeholders to achieve housing opportunities.


Participants will gain working knowledge of how to apply the proposed new rule; the obligations of the Community Development Block Grant program; and related HUD-funded initiatives that engage in government contracting, consulting, supporting, training, and other services to ensure compliance. In addition, participants will learn about model programs and innovative approaches. Participants will also be briefed on the status of current AFFH activities and have an opportunity to “ask the experts.”

 

This course was approved and funded with support from HUD’s Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity Fair Housing Initiatives Program.
