This session will review significant changes in Federal Fair Housing requirements that occurred in 2015. Topics include the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Federal Fair Housing Act, HUD’s new rule on Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, and the implementation of the rule through the Assessment of Fair Housing template. The session will help HUD entitlement communities plan for the new fair housing requirements and better understand what these developments mean for their programs, policies and land use regulations.
