HUD's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulations (24 CFR 5.150-5.168) provide that program participants must submit an Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) using a HUD-provided assessment tool. See e.g., 24 CFR 5.154. The regulations further provide a schedule of time frames by which different types of program participants must submit an assessment using the appropriate HUD-provided tool. See 24 CFR 5.160(a). These time frames are connected to an individual program participant's multi-year consolidated planning process. On January 5, 2018, at 83 FR 683, HUD published a Federal Register notice extending the time frame applicable to local government consolidated plan program participants. HUD is withdrawing the January 5, 2018, notice. If HUD later finds it prudent to revise the regulations, including by revising the submission schedule, HUD will publish a notice of proposed rulemaking to that effect for public comment.
