Preserving Community and Neighborhood Choice Final Rule

Preserving Community and Neighborhood Choice Final Rule

This final rule repeals HUD’s 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing regulations and the 1994 Analysis of Impediments requirements where they appear in regulation and instead returns policy to HUD’s pre-1994 understanding of the 1968 Fair Housing Act’s obligation to affirmatively further fair housing. It requires HUD grantees to certify that they will take active steps to promote fair housing, without HUD prescribing specific guidelines for doing so.
