This policy example on Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) is a companion to the report A Blueprint for the Next Generation of Federal Place-Based Policy. The blueprint offers a two-step process for policy analysis and program design that starts with high-level, analytical questions that help provide the aspirational framework for then addressing a series of specific design decisions. By offering recommendations across key design decisions, this policy example illustrates how the federal government can engage with cities and counties nationwide and mandate equitable place-based planning around the use of federal resources to overcome the legacy of segregation and disinvestment.
