HUD Publishes Proposed Rule to Revise Regulations for Faith-Based Organizations

Tuesday, January 7, 2003 - 1:45AM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) yesterday published a proposed rule to revise regulations that impose barriers to the participation of faith-based organizations in HUD programs. HUD calls such barriers “unwarranted” and says the changes would implement the department’s policy that, within the framework of constitutional church-state guidelines, faith-based organizations should be able to compete on an equal footing with other organizations for HUD funding. The changes would affect subsidies including HUD’s HOME Investment Partnerships and Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) programs. Click here for the Federal Register notice.
