HUD is providing a notice that projects can use to notify clients and residents of the new Equal Access rule requirements. The document helps providers ensure that individuals seeking placement or accommodation in a shelter or other building or facility and housing funded under a program administered by the Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) are aware of HUD’s equal access policy, as established in HUD’s 2012 Equal Access Rule, and elaborated upon in the Equal Access in Accordance with Gender Identity Final Rule published in the Federal Register on September 21, 2016.
