"HUD PROPOSES NEW RULE TO ENSURE EQUAL ACCESS TO HOUSING REGARDLESS OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION OR GENDER IDENTITY"

This is an important step from HUD especially coming on the heels of the change in the Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS Article 10 which added sexual orientation a protected class for all REALTORS. 

HUD Secretary, Shaun Donovan declares, "it is a fundamental issue of fairness.  We have a responsibility to make certain that public programs are open to all Americans.  With this proposed rule, we will make clear that a person’s eligibility for federal housing programs is, and should be, based on their need and not on their sexual orientation or gender identity.”

View the proposed rule announced today.
