Segregation, Opportunity and Affordable Housing. Deciding where affordable housing gets built - or doesn't get built - has implications for segregation, concentrated poverty, and economic opportunity. This panel discussion will focus on the siting of affordable housing through the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, the dominant affordable housing program in the U.S. and the subject of the Supreme Court’s Inclusive Communities decision in 2015 recognizing a disparate impact claim under the Fair Housing Act.
