HUD/FHEO RIN: 2529-AB05 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (FR-6250) 

Through this rule, HUD will implement the obligation to affirmatively further the purposes and policies of the Fair Housing Act with respect to certain recipients of HUD funds. This rule provides a framework under which program participants will set and implement meaningful fair housing goals that will determine how they will leverage HUD funds and other resources to affirmatively further fair housing (AFFH), promote equity in their communities, decrease segregation, and increase access to opportunity and community assets for people of color and other underserved communities. This rule retains much of the 2015 AFFH Rule's core planning process, with certain improvements such as a more robust community engagement requirement, a streamlined required analysis, greater transparency, an increased emphasis on goal setting and measuring progress, and mechanisms to hold program participants accountable for achieving positive fair housing outcomes.
