Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing

It is PRDOH’s intent to ensure that programs and activities will be made known and accessible to all interested and eligible individuals.

Certain housing activities require that PRDOH and its subrecipients ensure that program applicants who will develop or rehabilitate units for rent or sale have adopted affirmative marketing procedures in the form of an Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan (AFHM Plan). This requirement applies to any CDBG-DR program applicant who is developing or rehabilitating units for either rent or sale:

  • Multi-family developments and manufactured home lots of five (5) or more lots, units, or spaces; or
  • Single-family developments/subdivisions where the applicant intends to sell five (5) or more units, or when an applicant’s participation in the Program causes or would cause them to exceed the development of five (5) or more dwelling units during the year preceding the application.

HUD Handbook 8025.1 provides extensive information on the creation and implementation of AFHM Plans:
