The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that it’s pulling a tool designed for communities to identify instances of segregation.
The move, announced in a press release Friday, is the latest step by the department targeted at the Obama-era fair housing rules.
The press release states that local governments found that the “Local Government Assessment Tool was confusing, difficult to use, and frequently produced unacceptable assessments.”
The article goes on to state the following:
HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity Anna Maria Farías said in a statement that the department believes “in furthering fair housing choice in our neighborhoods, but we have to help, not hinder those who have to put our rules into practice.”
“We must make certain that our tools can facilitate the goals we all share-to build inclusive and sustainable communities free from discrimination,” she continued.
The Hill also reported:
Carson had written in a 2015 op-ed that steps to desegregate communities were “failed socialist experiments,” claiming that the “government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse.”
