NATIONAL CAPACD MOBILIZES MEMBERS TO PROTECT OUR COMMUNITIES
In June, National CAPACD hosted a webinar on the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s proposed rule, “Housing and Community Development Act of 1980: Verification of Eligible Status.” This rule would significantly change HUD’s regulations by further restricting eligibility for federal housing assistance based on immigration status. If finalized, the proposed rule will effectively evict 25,000 immigrant families from their homes, including over 55,000 children who are eligible for housing assistance under federal law. You can access a recording of the webinar here. You can access the webinar slides here and here (National Immigration Law Center's slides).
National CAPACD developed a template to mobilize comment letters about the impact of HUD's proposed rule. We urge you to use the template and generate your own comment letter, which you must submit via regulations.gov by next week, July 9, 2019. National CAPACD is proud to be a part of the Keep Families Together campaign. ________________________________________ Last week, National CAPACD hosted a webinar about Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)'s advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) about home mortgage data, a rule which would reduce reporting requirements for disaggregated racial subcategories. In 2014, National CAPACD submitted detailed comments to the CFPB about the importance of disaggregated race data for the AAPI community, which informed the 2015 HMDA Rule's expansion of racial subgroups. You can access a recording of the webinar here. You can access the webinar slides here.
In response to CFPB’s notice, National CAPACD created a template comment letter to remind the CFPB of the importance of disaggregated race data in protecting AAPIs and other communities of color. We urge your organization to submit a comment letter using our template by the extended deadline of October 15, 2019 to regulations.gov.
