Uniform Relocation Act (URA)
The Uniform Relocation Act (URA), passed by Congress in 1970, is a federal law that establishes minimum standards for federally funded programs and projects that require the acquisition of real property (real estate) or displace persons from their homes, businesses, or farms. The Uniform Act's protections and assistance apply to the acquisition, rehabilitation, or demolition of real property for federal or federally funded projects.
HUD Handbook 1378 explains and summarizes the URA and implementing regulations. The Appendix of the handbook contains the Guide forms referenced in the compliance procedures.
