Small Area Fair Market Rents to Take Effect Tuesday, Jan. 1 Due to Injunction
A Federal judge has ordered HUD to implement the Small Area Fair Market Rents (SAFMRs) in jurisdictions that had previously been suspended for two years on Tuesday, January 1. The injunction was issued as a result of a lawsuit by the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and two voucher holders (Open Communities Alliance, et al. v. Ben S. Carson, Sr.). The judge in the case argued that HUD did not show specific reasons as to why the rule’s implementation was delayed, and thus violated the rules within the final SAFMR regulation as to why a SAFMR could be suspended in a given jurisdiction.
