President Biden Issues Memorandum Directing HUD to Reverse Recent Fair Housing Rules

Date Published: 
January 29th, 2021

On Tuesday, January 26, President Biden issued a memo for the incoming HUD Secretary directing HUD to take steps to redress the nation and federal government's history of discriminatory housing practices and policies.

The memo outlines the history of discrimination in federal housing policy and instructs HUD Secretary-Designate Marcia Fudge to reexamine Trump Administration regulatory actions that effectively repealed the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule and established a disparate impact standard that would increase opportunities for discrimination and dilute the effectiveness of the Fair Housing Act. CLPHA strongly condemned new final rules on AFFH and disparate impact last year.
