A PRRAC-Lawyers’ Committee-National Fair Housing Alliance Program Review (January 2013).
Excerpt: “During the first term of the Obama Administration, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has reaffirmed a broad commitment to fair housing. However, while fair housing enforcement at the agency has increased noticeably, the task of reforming HUD’s own programs has been painstakingly slow. A flurry of positive activity inside the agency during the first term has not yet been reflected in final program regulations or guidance, even though some of this work has been underway for years. For this reason, our assessment of HUD’s progress is mixed – but we are still hopeful that the agency’s leadership will be able to expedite the completion of these needed reforms early in the second term.”
