HUD Announces Finalized Fair Housing Assessment Tool

Thursday, December 31, 2015 - 8:15AM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today announced the availability of its final, approved affirmatively furthering fair housing assessment tool. The tool was developed for recipients of funding from Community Development Block Grants (CDBGs), the HOME Investment Partnerships program (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) or Housing for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) when conducting and submitting their own assessments of fair housing. The assessment tool helps federal grantees identify patterns of integration and segregation, racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty, disparities in access to opportunity and disproportionate housing needs. For purposes of the assessment tool, no assessment of fair housing will be due before Oct. 4, 2016.
