As the City and CAC partnered to develop the AFH, the new federal administrators at HUD in January 2018 suspended the existing rule, discontinued review of AFHs, and in July 2020 the Trump Administration terminated the 2015 AFFH rule in favor of the rule "Preserving Community and Neighborhood Choice." Despite the changing HUD requirements, the City agreed to continue to work with the CAC to complete the AFH.
On December 9, 2020, the Council voted unanimously in favor of AFFH in zoning, where Goal 7.1 of the AFH is amending the zoning code to reflect fair housing and anti-displacement language.

The City has a long history of housing segregation and exclusionary housing practices that have been acknowledged in past Analysis of Impediments. Furthermore, recent studies released in the Summer of 2020 by Suffolk University and the Boston Foundation, MIT and City Life Vida Urbana, and National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) respectively showed existing discrimination against section 8 voucher holders and people with disabilities, disproportionate evictions amongst people of color, and Boston's ranking of 3rd in the nation in income inequality.
While the adoption of AFFH in the Zoning Code is a victory for fair housing – it will take sustained community activism and commitment by the City to ensure that the principles of affirmatively furthering fair housing are implemented and ingrained in all future city planning.
April 2021 is Fair Housing Month and this week the Council recognized the 2021 "City of Boston Assessment of Fair Housing" and supports its adoption and implementation of the stated policies and goals.
