HUD published a proposed rule that would amend the regulations governing admission to certain HUD-supported housing for applicants with criminal records or histories of involvement with the criminal justice system and evictions based on illegal drug use, drug-related criminal activity or other criminal activity. The proposed rule would require public housing authorities to consider the recency and relevance of previous criminal activity before denying or terminating covered housing assistance. HUD is accepting comments on the proposed rule until June 10.
