Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a robust multi-agency opposition to the federal government's proposed rule change that would ban mixed immigration status households from receiving federal housing assistance. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's proposed rule would have devastating consequences for mixed-status families, the majority of which include children who are U.S. citizens and otherwise eligible for support. Eight state agencies have submitted public comment in opposition to the proposed rule change, reaffirming New York's commitment to fair housing and protecting all New Yorkers regardless of immigration status.
