A Message from Secretary Marcia L. Fudge on the One-Year Anniversary of PAVE




We believe that home appraisals should be fair and unbiased for all.

We spoke with hundreds of stakeholders to evaluate the causes, extent, and consequences of appraisal bias.

Working as a coordinated team of 13 federal agencies, we developed a transformative set of recommendations to root out racial and ethnic bias in home valuations. Read our Action Plan to President Biden to learn how we’re fighting bias in appraisals.
