New Civil Rights Guidance on Marketing and Application Requirements for MF Properties
In case you missed it, HUD issued Civil Rights guidance April 21, 2022 on marketing and application requirements for MF properties that applies to the more than 1.5 million HUD-subsidized multifamily units nationwide, including Project-Based Rental Assistance, Section 202, and Section 811 subsidized units.
The two guidance pieces clarify how certain marketing, rental application processing, and waitlist management practices can perpetuate segregation or otherwise discriminate in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. The guidance is designed to assist property owners in understanding and implementing more inclusive practices less likely to produce discriminatory results.
“Today’s publication provides practical guidance to help property owners and managers to reach all members of their community,” said Ethan Handelman, HUD Deputy Assistant Secretary for Multifamily Housing Programs. “This is the latest step in the Department’s work to support our program participants in their efforts to make affordable housing available without barriers.”
