Event Description

Puzzled by 'minority groups' and other application questions? Here's help!

Register now for this 75-minute audio session in which our expert speaker, Elaine Simpson, will teach you to create an Affirmative Fair Housing Plan that will not only be HUD-approved but that can also be implemented effectively at the site level.

The practicalities of HUD's mission to ensure fair and equal housing opportunities for all can mean a mountain of confusing paperwork for you—especially the mandate that you market available housing to those populations least likely to apply for residency in your community. One of the biggest challenges to creating a HUD-approved Affirmative Fair Housing Plan lies in finding and using statistical data to correctly identify your "minority group."

Unravel that challenge—and more!—with the practical, from-the-field guidance offered in this program. Our expert presenter will take you step-by-step through the Affirmative Fair Housing Plan application, answering these commonly asked questions:

  • What is a "target marketing population designated as least likely to apply"?
  • What factors should we consider when determining our "minority group"?
  • How do we plan our marketing to reach our "minority group"?
  • Who do we list as the required "outreach contact"?
  • What are we committing to when we submit the Affirmative Fair Housing Plan?
  • How do we document that we are working our Affirmative Fair Housing Plan?

This presentation is appropriate for developers, property owners, management agents, and site staff.

After attending this how-to session, you will better understand HUD's requirements and be able to identify the sources for various pieces of information you need to complete and confidently submit your Affirmative Fair Housing Plan for approval. Participants will complete a sample plan application, which you'll be able to use as a template next time you submit a new or updated plan.
