FAAR applauds the strong stance the National Association of Realtors® is taking on fighting discrimination and bias in the housing industry and echoes NAR President Vince Malta’s recent comments on HUD’s proposed changes that weaken the disparate impact rule.
“NAR is disappointed that HUD is retreating on its decades-long policy requiring that communities receiving taxpayer money address discrimination and segregation. We previously communicated that disapproval to the industry and to the public , and our stance remains unchanged. Our commitment to fair housing and the property rights of all is unwavering. Discrimination and bias have absolutely no place in housing. We will continue to push all policymakers in Washington to ensure that the federal government promotes equality and eliminates discrimination in the housing market, for the benefit of all.”
