HUD Proposes Rule to Require Consideration of Multiple Sources of Information When Determining Eligibility of Tenants with History of Drug Use, Criminal Activity

Tuesday, April 9, 2024 - 12:57PM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will publish in Wednesday’s Federal Register a proposed rule to amend regulations for HUD-assisted properties concerning admission for applicants on the basis of illegal drug use, drug-related criminal activity or other criminal activity. The regulations would be amended to require public housing authorities (PHAs) and HUD-assisted housing owners to consider multiple sources of information, including the recency and relevance of prior criminal activity. The proposed rule text says the goal is to clarify existing PHA and owner obligations and reduce the risk of violating nondiscrimination laws. Comments on the proposed rule are due no later than June 10.
