HUD is pleased to announce updates to the AFFH (Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing) Data and Mapping Tool (AFFH-T) and the AFFH User Interface (AFFH-UI) systems.
On January 17, 2017, HUD will deliver a new release of the AFFH-T. AFFH-T Release 4.0 will provide additional maps and tables, as well as general enhancements to the user experience. Users will be able to use the updated maps and tables, but will also continue to have access to existing maps and tables that are currently available in Release 3.1. Please note the AFFH-T application will be out of service starting close of business on January 13, 2017 until the morning of January 17, 2017.
On January 16, 2017, HUD will also provide a new release of the AFFH-UI. AFFH-UI Release 3.0 will have new features to align with both the anticipated revisions to the Local Government Assessment Tool and with AFFH-T Release 4.0, and will also provide usability improvements. Please note the AFFH-UI application will be out of service beginning January 14, 2017 until the morning of January 16, 2017.
More details, training and guidance on the system updates will be posted on HUD Exchange. HUD continues to encourage you to subscribe to the HUD Exchange Mailing List to receive the most up-to-date information on critical deadlines, policy changes, and upcoming trainings in your inbox.
