Assessment of Fair Housing

To meet HUD requirements, the City of Boston is making an Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) in Boston.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: HUD directed grantees to not submit their AFH for review until further notice.  Despite HUD’s decision, the Department of Neighborhood Development (DND) and the Boston Housing Authority (BHA) remain committed to completing a locally tailored fair housing plan and are in the process of completing that work.  The Plan will reflect the information and feedback received through the 16-month community engagement process and will utilize the most relevant data provided by HUD.
