EPA and AFFH:  In comments on EPA's Environmental Justice 2020 Action Agenda, we urged the EPA to include the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing provision of the Fair Housing Act as a cross-cutting legal obligation and incorporate strategies for alignment with HUD's AFFH planning process.  We were joined by the National Housing Law Project, Grounded Solutions, NFHA, and other civil rights and environmental justice organizations.
