HUD, Fair Housing And The Federal Government Shutdown

 

January 22, 2019



The partial federal government shutdown is in its 30th day as I type this. It is going on longer than most people (including me) thought. No resolution seems to be in sight. The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) is one of the federal entities largely closed until the administration and Congress solve the current funding impasse.

So, what happens to our housing discrimination cases pending with HUD during the shutdown? The short answer is your case is on hold. I got emails from a handful of investigators when the shutdown went into effect noting they have been instructed not to report to the office and they are not permitted to work on their pending matters. Indeed, two of my cases had interviews scheduled that were postponed. No way to know how quickly they will get rescheduled once the government reopens.
