To help jurisdictions meet their Assembly Bill No. 686 (AB 686) obligations, the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) released the first sections of the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) Guidance Memo that include:
- The duty of all public agencies to affirmatively further fair housing
- New housing element requirements
- Additional resources for communities
Read the AFFH Guidance Memo, along with instructions, tools and resources. The website provides the baseline information needed surrounding the history, AB 686 legislation, and new housing element requirements to AFFH.
The AFFH Guidance Memo in PDF format details definitions, segregation measurements, and includes a compliance checklist.
