HUD Issues Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Proposed Rule

On January 19, 2023, the Department of Housing and Urban Development published the much-anticipated Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) proposed rule, which would implement the statutory obligation HUD and its program participants have to affirmatively further fair housing, as required by the 1968 Fair Housing Act. The proposed rule is intended to build and improve upon HUD’s 2015 AFFH final rule adopted under the Obama Administration.

HUD: FY 2023 median family incomes and income limits to be delayed

HUD: FY 2023 median family incomes and income limits to be delayed

The FY 2023 median family incomes and income limits would ordinarily be based on the ACS 2020 estimates. However, because of the lack of 1-year ACS 2020 estimates described above, HUD intends to instead base the FY 2023 median family incomes and income limits on ACS 2021 data. Since 2014, HUD has released median family incomes and income limits in March or April of each year. Because the special tabulations of ACS 2021 data HUD needs for median family income calculations will not be available until early 2023 , HUD intends to delay the release of FY 2023 median family incomes and income limits until on or about May 15, 2023. Should HUD revise this date, HUD will make a similar announcement on https://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/il.html.
