Title: Equal Access to Housing in HUD's Native American and Native Hawaiian Programs -- Regardless of Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity (FR-5861) 
Abstract:

This rule revises regulations for HUD’s Native American and Native Hawaiian programs to conform to existing rules that require HUD programs to be open to all eligible individuals and families regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status. Since HUD promulgated the Equal Access to Housing in HUD Programs Regardless of Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity final rule in February, 2012, HUD has required that HUD-assisted and HUD-insured housing be made available without regard to sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status, and has generally prohibited inquiries into sexual orientation or gender identity. In applying these requirements to HUD’s Native American and Native Hawaiian programs, this rule furthers the Federal goal of providing decent housing and a suitable living environment for all.
