HUD has issued a notice which provides guidance on how the Equal Access Rule applies to federally-assisted Multifamily housing.
On February 3, 2012, HUD published a final rule entitled Equal Access to Housing in HUD Programs Regardless of Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity (Equal Access Rule) (77 FR 5662). The Rule was intended to ensure that housing across HUD programs is open to all eligible individuals and families regardless of actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status.
More information on the Equal Access Rule and this recently issued guidance notice may be found in the HUD press release below.
