How We Help: Community Members

NCLR is continuing to work with HUD and other agencies that administer housing programs on a number of pending issues. These include:

  • Partnering with the Department of Agriculture (USDA) to develop a rule similar to HUD’s LGBT Equal Access Rule to prevent housing discrimination against LGBT people in rural public housing programs including Section 515 and Section 502 housing.
  • Advocating for additional guidance from HUD to clarify their position on access to gender-segregated shelters and other housing for transgender people.
