Klein Hornig Housing Alert – July 2021

HUD Prioritizes Fair Housing with New AFFH and Disparate Impact Rules

By: Emily Blumberg & Krystle Okafor

Last month, HUD issued two rules reinvigorating its enforcement of the Fair Housing Act. Both rules are components of the Biden Administration’s efforts to “ensure that fair and equal access to housing opportunity exists for all throughout the United States.”

First, on June 10, 2021, HUD published an interim final rule that restores definitions and certifications related to its implementation of the Fair Housing Act’s requirement to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing and reinstates HUD’s process for offering related technical assistance. The rule will go into effect on July 31, 2021.

Second, on June 25, 2021, HUD published a proposed rule that reinstates the discriminatory effects standard for Fair Housing Act enforcement, along with a request for public comments by August 24, 2021. Read more

Should you have any questions about this KH Housing Alert or about fair housing more generally, please contact Emily Blumberg at eblumberg@kleinhornig.com or (202) 926-3409.
