 Fair Housing and Equity Assessment (FHEA) 

The Connecticut Fair Housing Center in partnership with the Capitol Region Council of Governments and the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission authored the Fair Housing and Equity Assessment (FHEA) for the region known as the Knowledge Corridor which stretches from Connecticut’s Capitol Region to Northampton, MA.  The FHEA includes information about the fair housing and integration challenges facing this region along with an overview of some of the efforts which may alleviate the segregation which is an unfortunate hallmark of this area.

 Access to Housing In Connecticut 

Are Local Land Use Policies and Practices Contributing to Housing Segregation in the Hartford MSA? (2016-2017)
The Center examined the effect of the placement and access to income restricted housing and found that people of color living in urban areas had little or no access to income restricted housing in suburban neighborhoods.

Mortgage Lending Testing Report (2016-2017) 
The Center found that people of color are at increased risk for discriminatory treatment in finding an affordable mortgage.  The Center’s recent fair lending testing project supported the statistical evidence of redlining.

The Analysis of Foreclosure Intakes (2011-2016)
This examination of the Center’s foreclosure intakes over a five year period showed that women, African-Americans and Latinos were more likely to be denied a mortgage modification than Whites.
