The Trump Administration is releasing a new rule that will further fair housing, while respecting the role of State and local decision-making for their communities.
This action will repeal the Obama Administration's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule, which took away decision-making from local communities.
The new rule eliminates the excessive burden put on local communities and gets rid of the top-down approach that dictated zoning for communities.
The rule will help promote housing that is affordable, decent, safe, and free from discrimination.
Under the President's new rule, localities will continue to certify that they will affirmatively further fair housing, as required by law.
SAVING OUR SUBURBS: This action ends the Federal encroachment on local communities that threatened our nation's suburbs.
