In accordance with Executive Order 13563, ‘‘Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review,’’ HUD is reviewing its existing regulations to evaluate their continued effectiveness in addressing circumstances for which the regulations
were promulgated. As part of this review, HUD invites public comments to assist in the development of a plan for periodically analyzing existing significant regulations to determine whether they should be modified,
streamlined, expanded, or repealed. HUD also seeks comment to identify specific current regulations that may be outdated, ineffective, or excessively burdensome. The purpose of this regulatory review is to make the Department’s regulations more effective
and less burdensome in achieving HUD’s mission to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities, and quality affordable homes for all.
