Under this federal mandate, strengthened by a state law passed in 2018, cities cannot simply wait for people to complain about being treated unfairly, they must proactively plan policies to ensure that everyone is given fair and equal treatment. Come learn how to make sure that our city’s Housing Element complies with AFFH.
