North Texas Regional Housing Assessment

In 2015, the Obama administration announced a federal rule, Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, requiring communities to address patterns of segregation. As a result, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development established a process called an Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH), requiring federal grantees to identify, evaluate and address fair housing issues.

In 2016, municipalities and public housing entities nationwide began their efforts. For the North Texas Regional Housing Assessment, seven cities and 15 public housing agencies agreed to develop a regional study, establishing the largest AFH group in the country. The University of Texas at Arlington conducted the study, and DHA was one of the participating agencies.
