CLPHA Applauds HUD Withdrawal of Proposed Rule on Mixed Status Families

Date Published: 
April 1st, 2021

Tomorrow, HUD is publishing a Federal Register notice that announces the Department’s withdrawal of HUD’s 2019 proposed rule on changes to the treatment of mixed status households receiving federal housing assistance. According to the notice, HUD has identified that the proposed rule is inconsistent with recent executive orders and the principles of advancing racial equity and improving immigration policies to better promote integration, inclusion, and paths to citizenship.

CLPHA had strongly opposed the proposed rule on the grounds that it was counter to the mission of PHAs, created fear and uncertainty among non-citizens, and imposed significant costs for federally assisted households and their communities.

We thank members of CLPHA’s immigration working group for providing input that helped inform CLPHA’s approach to opposing the proposed rule.
