PD&R Quarterly Update: Source of Income Discrimination

Banner for Source of Income Discrimination

On Thursday, July 25, 2024, HUD’s Office of Policy Development & Research (PD&R) will host a hybrid PD&R Quarterly Update on source of income discrimination and laws. Over the past two decades, evidence of discrimination against housing choice voucher holders has grown. More than half of voucher households live in states and localities that have adopted ordinances to prevent this kind of discrimination. This event will bring together researchers, municipal and state government officials, and fair housing practitioners to share insights into recent passage of local anti-discrimination ordinances; evaluate research about the impacts of these anti-discrimination laws; and discuss challenges to the enforcement of these ordinances.
