NCRC Reacts to Supreme Court Decision Upholding Use of Disparate Impact Analysis in Fair Housing

WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 26, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project upholding the use of disparate impact analysis in the enforcement of the Fair Housing Act, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition’s (NCRC) President and CEO John Taylor made the following statement:

“For many years, the application of disparate impact doctrine has helped to expose housing practices that may appear neutral on their face but have discriminatory effects on protected classes. Housing discrimination today often isn’t as blatant as it was in the past, so this is a vital tool for enforcing fair housing law. We applaud the Supreme Court for making the right decision today.”

“At the same time, we remain vigilant in the cause of fair housing for all Americans. NCRC and our members will continue to work hard every day to create economic fairness and fair access to housing, credit, capital and banking services.”
