February 9, 2023, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) entitled “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing”.

In February 2023, HUD issued a proposed Affirmatively Further Fair Housing regulation for public comment. For the first time, the proposed rule provided for an administrative complaint procedure to enforce the AFFH requirement. Giving the public the ability to submit complaints to HUD in cases where a grantee, such as a local or state government, has failed to comply with the requirements of the AFFH rule, failed to comply with the commitments it has made under the rule, or has taken action materially inconsistent with its obligation to affirmatively further fair housing, is a critical provision that must be enforced by HUD.
