New Deal for Housing Justice: A Housing Playbook for the New Administration

From The Housing Playbook Project at Community Change, and authored by several AFN partners, this report is a blueprint for the administration to address.

“Housing should be a core priority of the next administration, particularly reducing the racial wealth and homeownership gaps that have persisted nationwide over time. Our system of housing finance and policy requires bold transformative change that disentangles the legacy of structural barriers that have disadvantaged people of color and fed a long history of housing inequality and persistent housing and wealth gaps.”

The recommendations in the report are based on more than 400 ideas shared by grassroots leaders and advocates in response to an open call for input launched early in the project and more than 100 stakeholder interviews.
