A PRRAC Report: This report was prepared by Mary Anne Sullivan, Derek Centola, and Lara Hakki of Hogan Lovells LLP, along with Peter Kye and Philip Tegeler at PRRAC. We are grateful to Peter Haberlandt, Mike Rawson, Adam Gordon, Noemie Sportiche, and Judith Liben for their review of specific sections of the report, and special thanks to Megan Haberle for her helpful comments throughout.
Excerpt: “This paper sets out a series of seven initiatives that states can take to affirmatively further fair housing, both as part of a new federal AFFH process, and in their role as independent policymaking authorities outside the sometimes unpredictable framework of the federal government. Section III will discuss these initiatives with examples of successes from states from around the country. The goal of this paper is to encourage more states to adopt legislation and programs like those described here in the hope that the integration mandate of the Fair Housing Act will continue to be advanced.”
