Title: Housing and Community Development of 1980: Verification of Eligible Status  

This rule would make two changes to HUD’s regulations implementing section 214 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1980 (Section 214). Section 214 prohibits the Secretary of HUD from making financial assistance available to persons other than United States citizens, nationals, or certain categories of eligible noncitizens in HUD's public and specified assisted housing programs. The rule would require the verification of the eligible immigration status of all recipients of assistance under a covered program who are under the age of 62. The rule would also specify that individuals who are not in eligible immigration status may not serve as the leaseholder, even as part of a mixed family whose assistance is prorated based on the percentage of members with eligible status. HUD believes the amendments will bring its regulations into greater alignment with the wording and purpose of  Section 214.
