EDITOR'S NOTE: 24 CFR Part 109 is no longer officially part of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 109 was withdrawn from the Code of Federal Regulations by directive no. FR-4029-F-01, effective May 1, 1996. We have included the Part 109 regulations here because they still apparently represent the position of HUD on advertising issues, except as they were superceded by Roberta Achtenberg's memo of Jan. 9, 1995.
The purpose of this part is to assist all advertising media, advertising agencies and all other persons who use advertising to make, print, or publish, or cause to be made, printed, or published, advertisements with respect to the sale, rental, or financing of dwellings which are in compliance with the requirements of the Fair Housing Act. These regulations also describe the matters this Department will review in evaluating compliance with the Fair Housing Act in connection with investigations of complaints alleging discriminatory housing practices involving advertising.
