Housing problems continue to impact minority communities severely, it is incumbent that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People affirms its commitment to address and remedy housing discrimination and inequities and advocate equal opportunity and access to adequate affordable housing.
Some of the major concerns continuing to exist for many years without satisfactorily resolution, are the lack of adequate and affordable housing and the inaction of all levels of government to address these concerns; the growing shortage of good public housing for the economically disadvantage; the decreasing availability and sometimes questionable distribution of "Section 8" Housing Assistance Vouchers; the continuous growth of homeless persons and families in most cities and other communities the real and perceived discrimination (including racial profiling) in some programs already in effect and housing discrimination based solely on race, income, gender, the number of family members and housing subsidies. Housing programs continue to face drastic cuts in funding and affirmative marketing is not adequately promoted and economically disadvantage people continue to face drastic cuts in funding.
The NAACP reaffirms its commitment to address and remedy housing discrimination and inequities, and to advocate equal opportunity and access to adequate affordable housing.
