Real estate sites have had a pretty rough go in the Trump era, with sites like real estate listings and vacation rentals struggling to gain traction.
But the Trump Administration has taken steps to help the sector, with the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Department releasing a new housing plan that will give states greater flexibility in how to administer their housing programs.
It is a plan that is designed to provide a more streamlined process for states to use for housing and rent control, and also gives them the ability to waive certain requirements for certain types of housing and to establish exemptions for certain uses of existing housing.
The plan is aimed at allowing states to ease housing requirements for lower-income people, such as people on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and people with disabilities.
“The new rule will help the market develop for more affordable housing,” HUD Secretary Ben Carson said in a statement.
“We need to make housing more accessible for everyone, regardless of income, age, or ability.”
The new plan also calls for a number of changes to HUD’s housing program.
It will allow states to waive housing requirements based on income or disability.
It would allow states, instead of having to prove that a particular use of housing was needed to qualify for HUD housing subsidies, to use the existing rules as a way to assess whether the needs of certain types or populations are being met.
It also provides more flexibility in terms of where HUD can use certain housing programs to help people who are currently on welfare or receiving Section 8 vouchers.
HUD said it would look for the use of existing programs to identify new programs that could meet the needs, and would evaluate them on a case-by-case basis.
The new housing rules are designed to help states create and administer housing programs that will “help families and individuals stay together and stay healthy,” HUD said.
They also include measures to prevent homelessness, promote access to mental health services, and help people find housing.
It says states can use HUD’s new housing program to help them better manage homelessness and other forms of social and economic instability.
The Trump Administration is also seeking to ease certain requirements that are still on the books in the HUD program.
The Department of Housing and Environment has a number that will be eliminated, but those requirements will still apply to people with certain income levels, and they will be able to apply for waivers.
For example, people who earn less than $47,000 a year will not be eligible for HUD’s rental assistance.
This means that those who earn $100,000 or more will still have to prove they can pay for housing.
HUD says the elimination of the $1,500 minimum for the minimum wage will help address the need for workers to supplement their income with housing.
HUD also announced new policies to help state governments better manage the housing crisis in their states, and to ensure that all people who apply for HUD rental assistance have adequate documentation of their income and need.
