On July 23, HUD released a new final rule, Preserving Community and Neighborhood Choice, to replace the AFFH rule and AI requirements. This final rule is a dramatic step backwards in HUD’s legislatively-mandated role in furthering fair housing, and subsequently in the advancement of our communities in undoing segregation and fostering inclusion.
