New for NCRC members: Quarterly meetings on fair housing

NCRC is launching a quarterly fair housing online meeting with NCRC  members as a new benefit of membership. The first meeting will take place October 27, 2021, from 11 am to Noon ET via Zoom.

We want this first call to be a time for members to meet and talk with NCRC’s fair housing and fair lending teams. Among other things, we’ll talk about how to partner with members to address discriminatory practices across the country.  

We’ll discuss new disparate impact rules, new forms of housing discrimination in areas such as housing appraisals, national trends in fair housing, fair lending, strategize on enforcement approaches, and share how we can support one another in this work. We’ll also talk about how to adjust to a new normal with the ongoing pandemic.  However,  one thing remains constant – we are all in this fight together and this new member meeting will strengthen our ability to create a just economy.  

If you are not a current NCRC member, join now

For more information about fair housing call, contact Sr. Program Manager Rose Ramirez at rramirez@ncrc.org or 202.464.2298.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
