On January 5, a notice issued by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development appeared in the Federal Register that suspends until October 31, 2020, the requirement that more than 1,000 jurisdictions submit the Assessment of Fair Housing. Enterprise had this response:

“Enterprise, along with many in the housing and community development field, is profoundly troubled by this notice,” said Laurel Blatchford, senior vice president and chief program officer, Enterprise. “The Assessment of Fair Housing is an important tool for addressing entrenched segregation and economic inequality. Many communities across the country have already used this process to begin creating greater opportunity and more equitable neighborhoods, and its suspension will put that progress in serious jeopardy.”
