Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH)Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides block grants to states, urban counties and large cities for community development and housing activities. States and qualifying counties and cities choose how to invest those dollars to meet their needs, within certain parameters. For example, the investments must assist low to moderate income households or low-income neighborhoods.
