Lancaster Online, August 16, 2020: The need to expand housing access for all county residents
In late July, the federal government repealed the 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule.
That rule was the first time a key provision of the landmark Fair Housing Act of 1968 was put into effect in a meaningful way. It protected the elderly, people with disabilities, people of color and others from discrimination in housing. Repealing the rule was a step backward.
