The City of Richmond reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of 
Housing and Urban Development (HUD), in response to complaints filed 
against the City by mobile home park residents. The agreement addresses 
assertions that Richmond unfairly targeted Latino-occupied mobile home 
communities for maintenance code enforcement and that the City did not offer 
sufficient interpretation or translation services.
