Planning April 2018

Are We Fair Yet?

Fifty years after passage of the Fair Housing Act, segregated housing is still the norm in much of the nation. The Obama administration's 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule (suspended last December by current HUD Secretary Ben Carson) nudged cities toward compliance with new resources and reporting and action requirements. Many municipalities responded with housing assessments and plans; Planning's April cover story, "Fair Housing at 50," zeroes in on a multi-jurisdictional effort under way in and around Kansas City, Missouri.
