Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing: An Analysis of Fair Housing Access & Zoning Practices in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights adopted a proposal to undertake a study of Fair Housing and Zoning Practices in Pennsylvania. The focus of the Committee’s inquiry was to examine the impact of zoning laws, municipal nuisance and crime-free housing ordinances, and related fair housing concerns on disparities based on race, color, disability status, national origin, age, religion, sex and/or familial status. The Committee also examined extent to which specific state or local policies and practices may contribute to observed disparities, as well as alternative practices or recommendations with the demonstrated potential to address such concerns.
