Biden administration reverses regulation protecting single-sex homeless shelters

Reprinted from Sara Carter's news page.


The Biden administration rolled back a Trump-era policy that, in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s words, “would have allowed for HUD-sanctioned, federally funded discrimination against transgender people.”

The policy requires any shelter receiving money from HUD’s Office of Community Planning and Development to accommodate any person, regardless of gender or sexual identity, according to the Free Beacon.

“Transgender and gender non-conforming people report more instances of housing instability and homelessness than cis-gender people,” Secretary Marcia Fudge said. “Today, we are taking a critical step in affirming HUD’s commitment that no person be denied access to housing or other critical services because of their gender identity.”

The Beacon reported that opponents are critical of the move, saying it will hurt women.

“The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development under the Biden administration has abandoned women and girls under the guise of being ‘inclusive,’” said senior counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom Kate Anderson.
