Fair Housing, Disparate Impact and Community Development after Texas Dept. of Housing & Community Affairs v. Inclusive Communities Project
12 PM CDT
The recent Supreme Court decision in TDHCA v ICP upholds the viability of claims of disparate impact under the Fair Housing Act. In this first part of a two part series examining the latest civil rights trends affecting affordable housing and community development, learn about the meaning of the decisions, and hear from industry experts and civil rights practitioners about the current and potential future effect of the case on the practices of both fair housing advocates and public agencies engaged in Low Income Housing Tax Credit and other affordable housing and community development activities. Panelists will discuss the underlying concept of disparate impact and talk about hands on experiences applying the principle to day to day decisions.
