Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing

NAR supports meaningful enforcement of the Fair Housing Act’s requirement that jurisdictions receiving federal assistance should assess the impact of that spending on local patterns of segregation and disinvestment. NAR opposed the repeal of HUD’s 2015 AFFH rule and supports issuance of a new rule creating a simpler process for communities to assess barriers to fair housing and develop local solutions to overcome them.
