HUD released an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) to reconsider HUD’s implementation of the Affirmatively Further Fair Housing (AFFH) rule.
Undermining another Obama-era initiative, the Trump administration plans to delay enforcement of a federal housing rule that requires communities to address patterns of racial residential segregation.
In a statement, 76 community groups (including NCRC) say that the delaying the rule by one year is tantamount to repealing the rule altogether.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced this week it is suspending the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule until 2020. The AFFH rule was passed in 2015 to provide jurisdictions with a long overdue roadmap and measurement tools to comply with the landmark Fair Housing Act (FHA).
