Save the Date: On January 31st, NCRC Presents “Locked Out: What Losing Fannie, Freddie, and the Affordable Housing Goals Will Mean for the American Dream”

You are cordially invited to attend the National Community Reinvestment Coalition’s timely forum on the future of the government sponsored enterprises and housing finance reform called “Locked Out: What Losing Fannie, Freddie, and the Affordable Housing Goals Will Mean for the American Dream.” The event will consist of two panels focused on issues critical to a successful housing market that have, so far, received little attention in the reform debate:

(1) How can we ensure that secondary market access serves the full scope of creditworthy borrowers?
(2) Is dismantling Fannie and Freddie the right thing for consumers and the housing market as a whole?

Friday, January 31, 2014
Breakfast starts at 8:30am, Keynote and panels begin at 9am.
Partnership for Public Service – Suite 200 East
1100 New York Ave. NW
Washington, DC

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.
