​North Texas Regional Assessment of Fair Housing

The Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) is a legal requirement that the City must complete to continue receiving federal housing and community development funding from the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). Specifically, the AFH is an analysis undertaken pursuant to 24 CFR Part 5.152 that includes the analysis of fair housing data, an assessment of housing issues and contributing factors, and identification of fair housing priorities and goals specific to Dallas.  Examples of fair housing issues include regional demographics, segregation, racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty, access to opportunity, disproportionate housing need, publicly supported housing, access to persons with disabilities, and fair housing enforcement and outreach capacity. 

The City held the first round of Public Participation Meetings in July of 2017 and a second round of Public Participation Meetings in January of 2018.
