Community Change released on January 25 the New Deal for Housing Justice: A Housing Playbook for the New Administration. The project presents federal policy recommendations centering racial justice and equitable access to affordable housing. NLIHC President and CEO Diane Yentel served on the Playbook’s advisory committee.
The Playbook presents a federal housing policy agenda that aims to address and root out the systemic racism and discrimination that has plagued federal housing policy since its inception. It also has recommendations for how the federal government can grow partnerships with state and local advocates, expand access to affordable, accessible housing in rural areas, end homelessness, and build equitable, resilient communities. The document closes with suggestions for altering personnel and organizational structures to address needed institutional changes within the federal government.
