How does Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) affect the Town’s Housing Element?

HCD has not yet approved the Town's proposed Housing Element due to their conclusion that housing on private school properties did not provide housing opportunities for the general public and therefore applied discrimination in accordance with the objective of Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH).

To find out more about how HCD assists in the assessment of fair housing, HCD released an interactive statewide AFFH Data Viewer 2.0. This viewer provides access to the most recent fair housing data, including population demographics, concentrated areas of poverty and percentages of structures that show any disparity related to AFHH.
