Real Estate Trade Groups Unite in Support of Federal Fair Housing Rule
A coalition of housing groups have united during Fair Housing Month in support of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s proposed Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule
A coalition of housing groups have united during Fair Housing Month in support of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) proposed Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule that provides guidance and tools for cities and states that receive HUD funding to find local solutions to reverse segregated housing patterns.
The regulation is designed to implement the Fair Housing Act’s directive that HUD and its funding recipients take action to overcome patterns of segregation and foster inclusive communities free from discrimination. April traditionally commemorates the Fair Housing Act’s passage in April 1968.
The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) is joined by The National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB), the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP), the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA), and the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance (the Alliance) in supporting HUD’s proposed AFFH rule. The rule improves upon HUD’s 2015 AFFH rule, providing for more robust community engagement, streamlining processes for funding recipients, and providing greater transparency. The proposed rule also places a new emphasis on expanding homeownership opportunities.
