Very informal scheme that provides for resolution of complaints by businesses or residents alleging noncompliance with Section 3 program requirements. Complaints are only heard by the Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (or his/her designee) in a hearing procedure when the complainant and recipient cannot come to a resolution on their own. See 24 CFR 135.76(e-f).
There are no procedural rules guiding the Assistant Secretary's process for reaching a written decision, other than noting that the Assistant Secretary may conduct additional investigation if needed.
