HUD Proposes Rule that Would Separate or Evict Mixed-Status Families

On May 10, HUD published a proposed rule that would prohibit “mixed-status families”—households whose members have different citizenship and immigration statuses—from living in public and other subsidized housing. This proposal could lead to the eviction of mixed-status families that are currently permitted to live together and receive prorated housing assistance for the eligible family members. It could also further threaten the housing assistance for millions of households that remain eligible for assistance and consist only of U.S. citizens or eligible immigrants.

Comments on HUD’s proposed rule are due July 9.
