Jurisdictions that receive funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) must “affirmatively further fair housing” (AFFH) – they must take proactive steps to create more housing choice for people of color and people with disabilities and to decrease segregation. A key component of this responsibility is to produce an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). (With HUD’s passage of a new rule on AFFH, the document is now called an Assessment of Fair Housing, or AFH.) When the City of Oakland released a draft AI in September, Public Advocates submitted comments. And in October, the City released a new AI, addressing every one of our recommendations, including identifying displacement as an impediment to fair housing. This table summarizes PA’s recommendations and the relevant changes in the AI.
