The President’s Directive


On June 1, 2021, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. directed Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia Fudge to lead “...a first-of-its-kind interagency initiative to address inequity in home appraisals. The effort will seek to utilize, quickly, the many levers at the federal government’s disposal, including potential enforcement under fair housing laws, regulatory action, and development of standards and guidance in close partnership with industry and state and local governments, to root out discrimination in the appraisal and homebuying process.”
