The Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) Plan

The Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) Plan identifies fair housing issues and develops strategies to reduce existing barriers throughout the City of Los Angeles. Based on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) data, the City’s local data, as well as feedback gathered during the community participation and survey process, the AFH Plan outlines recommendations to promote fair housing choice and foster inclusive communities. The goals and priorities demonstrated in the AFH Plan will be used to inform future policy development in the City of Los Angeles.

The AFH Plan was adopted by City Council on October 25, 2017 (16-0647).
