April 24, 2023 — Letter

The 48 undersigned fair housing, civil rights, housing advocacy, faith, consumer, women’s, real estate, LGBTQI+, senior and allied organizations submit these comments on HUD’s proposed new affirmatively furthering fair housing (AFFH) regulation (Docket No. FR-6250-P-01). We commend HUD for advancing this important regulation, which is a critical tool for creating more equitable and inclusive communities in which all residents – regardless of who they are or where they live – have access to the resources, amenities and opportunities they need to flourish. A strong AFFH regulation will amplify the impact of the Biden-Harris administration’s commitment to advancing equity in our country.
