HUD takes first step to restore fair housing rule

June 17, 2021

This is an important first step in restoring a policy that advances racial equity. As Secretary Fudge points out, a half-century after the federal government sought to make amends for a long history of discriminatory housing policies, housing remains deeply unequal.
