Housing

Why this issue matters for racial equity?

For most families, their house is their biggest asset, providing stability and a means for building wealth. The exclusionary discrimination practices in the housing market have generated a volatile cycle for people of color, leaving them with lower homeownership rates, higher priced loans and living in segregated neighborhoods with less access to public resources.

 

Policy levers:

Advocates across the state are organizing in a variety of municipal campaigns focused on increasing affordable and quality housing opportunities and for the protection and acknowledgement of tenant rights.

 

Indicators:

Income left after housing costs (owner), income left after housing costs (renter), foreclosure rate, loan types/subprime, housing quality, homeownership, and student homelessness.
