To help communities complete the AFH, HUD has created maps and data tables that help determine where residents face barriers to housing choice and economic opportunity. Access HUD maps and tables https://www.hudexchange.info/resource/4867/affh-data-and-mapping-tool/.

We prepared this document to help residents interpret the HUD data and maps.

The primary sources of the data in the HUD tables and maps are the U.S. Census (10 year and annual American Community Survey), HUD customized models for opportunity indicators, and Public Housing Authority reports.
