Creating Fair Housing Metrics and Milestones Using Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Data
MetadataShow full item record
With the recent overhaul of Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) policy by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), jurisdictions that receive federal HUD funding are now provided with an array of tools and data necessary to conduct the analysis of fair housing issues specific to their area. They have been asked by HUD to form fair housing goals based on their findings from using the tools and data, but little guidance has been given on how a jurisdiction sets reasonable metrics and milestones in order to show whether its goals have been met. In this paper, I use the HUD-provided AFFH data for Gwinnett County, Georgia to determine ways of 1) assessing fair housing issues and 2) setting clear and reasonable metrics and milestones.
