SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On November 21, 2007, the Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) transferred the responsibility for investigating complaints filed pursuant to Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 (Section 3) from FHEO in Washington, DC, to each of the ten FHEO region offices. (See the delegation of authority published in the Federal Register on December 17, 2007 at 72 FR 71429.) All Section 3 monitoring and enforcement responsibilities will remain in FHEO at HUD headquarters in Washington, DC.
