Comments Due to NAFCU: HUD - Reinstatement of HUD’s Discriminatory Effects Standard
NAFCU would like to highlight the following:
- The proposed rule reverts HUD’s disparate impact regulations to those that were originally promulgated in 2013.
- A practice has a discriminatory effect where it actually or predictably results in a disparate impact on a group of persons or creates, increases, reinforces, or perpetuates segregated housing patterns because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
- The proposed rule would rescind HUD’s 2020 rule, which sought to conform pleading requirements with the Supreme Court’s observation that plaintiffs in disparate impact cases brought under the Fair Housing Act must meet a robust causality requirement.
