A Balanced Approach to Fair Housing

We believe in a balanced approach to fair housing, which promotes access to high opportunity communities through mobility, while ensuring that residents who remain in neighborhoods currently experiencing distress and concentrated poverty have access to housing resources and investments that improve their housing. This approach allows for affordable housing development and preservation in a variety of areas, while ensuring that residents have the right to choose where they live.

For NHT, opportunity means giving families and elderly residents a choice that is best for them. Choice means both improving the quality of life for residents of low-income communities as well as supporting mobility to “high opportunity” neighborhoods. To learn more about how states define, measure, and prioritize access to opportunity in the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program, visit PrezCat, NHT’s online database of state and local housing preservation policies.
