National Low Income Housing Coalition launches new equity and anti-racism resources
The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) has launched a new Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Anti-racism, and Systems-thinking (IDEAS) webpage providing resources, research, videos, and more to help partner organizations incorporate IDEAS into all aspects of their work.
The webpage highlights NLIHC’s policy, research, and advocacy work to advance racial equity and inclusion in federal housing policy. It provides historical context for understanding the housing disparities we see today, helps advocates better understand the dynamic nature of housing systems, and provides advocates with the tools they need to help advance anti-racist policies and redress the impacts of decades-long, intentional racist housing and transportation policies.
The webpage also serves as the home for a new reviewing system. There, advocates can monitor the equity action plans recently issued by governmental bodies, including the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
