NYHC submitted comments today responding to HUD’s Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (Docket No. FR-6123-A-01) regarding HUD’s intent to streamline the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule. In the ANPR, HUD invited comments on a series of 8 questions that are intended to weaken the AFFH rule via loosening goals around data collection, analysis, reporting, and community engagement. NYHC recommended that HUD preserve the AFFH rule as enacted in 2015 and re-implement the AFH, which is currently suspended. See our full comments here.
