ONE DAY WORKSHOP     10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

ALL public housing authorities administering HUD programs, regardless of size,
MUST comply with the AFFH Rule!

This session will include information on disparate impact, HUD’s balancing test and how to turn the municipal and state level AFFH Analysis into a proactive tool for PHA programs.

All three components of the analysis will be touched including community process, the relevance of data and “meaningful activities” for PHAs.  Throughout the session, the trainer will make observations and point out strategic considerations for PHAs including rationales for partnering and how to approach the AFFH requirements for the first time.

The training session will rely on HUD’s Affirmative Further Fair Housing Guidebook as the primary text.   The intent is to work our way through the critical aspects of the guidebook to establish a basic understanding of the requirements and HUD’s intent.   Registrants can download and print the guidebook in advance of the session. Supplemental handouts will be shared at the session. 

Presenter - Andrew Daniels

Andrew Daniels is the President of MAPPLAN Partners, a management and strategic consulting firm that has been providing services to affordable housing providers for over two decades.  His knowledge base ranges from management assessments of all aspects of public housing agency operations to public policy and community planning around affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization.  He has assisted a range for PHAs from very small to extremely large with the development of portfolio strategies, and he is currently working with a number of clients on redevelopment for both state and federal programs and new development opportunities.   

He is serving as development consultant for such agencies as West Hartford, New Britain, East Hartford, Meriden, New Canaan, Lowell and Enfield working with them on such issues as housing finance and financing applications, development team building, master planning and management of design professionals, and development of income targeting plans and relocation planning.
