NAHRO CEO Statement on Proposed Rule Regarding Immigrants in HUD-Assisted Housing
"HUD has now published its proposed rule to remove "mixed families" or their family members from subsidized housing across the country, and places the burden of doing so on local housing providers.
And, to add insult to injury, HUD's analysis says this action would INCREASE costs to taxpayers, and likely not alleviate pressure on local waiting lists, as it previously suggested.
Evicting families, raising program costs, and forcing unfunded mandates on local communities: This is a hot mess."
