Local leaders applaud new HUD rule targeting segregation


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced details of a final rule Wednesday designed to help cities reduce housing segregation by equipping them with new tools to identify inequities in housing and come up with strategies for promoting integration in the community.

The rule is designed to clarify guidelines established in the Fairing House Act of 1968 that obligates cities that receive HUD funding to ensure all residents have access to affordable, quality housing.

Mayor Betsy Hodges expressed strong support for the new rule.
