(3) HUD’s Implementation of the Fair Housing Act’s Disparate Impact Standard – October 18, 2019

In an extreme move to dismantle anti-discrimination laws, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) has proposed a regulation that would allow financial institutions, insurance companies, and housing providers to engage in covert discriminatory practices by dramatically weakening disparate impact liability under the Fair Housing Act. MHC asks you to make a comment opposing the proposed changes. You can see the changes and make comments from the web-site: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/08/19/2019-17542/huds-implementation-of-the-fair-housing-acts-disparate-impact-standard

Put in the docket number FR 6111-P-02 with your comments.
