The persistence of racial segregation in housing by Ann Burnet Schnare( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The movement of the black population from rural to urban areas increased the potential for integration by ending the isolation of blacks on farms in the rural South. But that isolation has been replaced by a new form of segregation. Black metropolitan growth has been concentrated in the central cities accommodated by the expansion of urban ghettos rather than by the development of racially integrated neighborhoods. The most immediate effect of segregation is found in the cost and quality of housing available to blacks. In addition, segregated housing gives rise to segregated schools which appear to have a negative impact on the scholastic achievement of blacks. Other effects include the lack of employment opportunities and a rise in prejudicial attitudes and discriminatory actions. Governmental attempts to deal with the problem have not been effective due, in some part, to racial differences in income, information barriers, and particularly to prejudicial attitudes on the parts of both blacks and whites.

Subsidizing shelter : the relationship between welfare and housing assistance by Sandra J Newman( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the relationship between income and housing assistance programs. The welfare system, through the explicit and implicit shelter allowances that welfare recipients receive as part of their public assistance benefits, spends at least $10 billion a year on housing assistance. The Department of Housing and Urban Development spends a similar amount. Yet, the two streams of government financing for low income housing are uncoordinated and frequently overlapping. Part 1 presents new evidence on both the nature and the impact of this two-pronged approach to providing shelter assistance to the poor. It compares the level of benefits available to households receiving various combinations of aid, and documents the housing outcomes that are produced by the two systems of shelter support. It includes the following chapters: (1) Executive Summary; (2) Introduction; (3) Shelter Allowances Under the Welfare System; (4) The Impact of the Two-Pronged System; and (5) Directions for Future Policy. Part 2 presents detailed statistics on estimated shelter allowances for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia under the following programs: (1) Aid to Families with Dependent Children (afdc); (2) Supplemental Security Income (ssi); and (3) General Assistance (ga). Extensive statistical data are included on 42 tables, two graphs, and six appendices. (Fmw)

Residential segregation by race in U.S. metropolitan areas : an analysis across cities and over time by Ann Burnet Schnare( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a need to understand more clearly the forces that work to generate and maintain a segregated housing market. There is also a need to formulate statistical measures of segregation, so that developments in future years can be assessed against the past. This report was designed with these two objectives in mind. The analysis is primarily concerned with the experience of the 1960's, when the socioeconomic status of minorities was undergoing significant improvement, new civil rights initiative had emerged from the courts, and surveys revealed an apparent weakening in the prejudices of blacks and whites alike. Since the 1960's seemed particularly ripe for an increase in integration, developments within those years provide some telling clues to the prospects for future change. A brief review of recent trends in attitudes, incomes, and policies which might have encouraged the breakdown of segregated living patterns is first provided. Statistics which describe the segregation of urban households in 1960 and 1970 actually show an overall increase in the level of segregation during the ten year period. Social, economic, and market factors that might affect the location of blacks and whites within a housing market are considered. The findings suggest that racial segregation may continue to plague the majority of urban areas. (Author/AM)
Trends in residential segregation by race : 1960-1980 by Scott McKinney( Book )

5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Residential segregation by race was lower in 1980 than it was in 1970, although there was almost no improvement in integration during the preceding decade. Furthermore, it was lower in 1980 than it was in 1960 for the nation as a whole, and for each of the census regions. Thus while housing markets remain highly segregated today, barriers to integration appear to be slowly breaking down. This study of trends in residential segregation in the 1970s used tract data obtained from the 1960, 1970, and 1980 Census of Population and Housing on standard metropolitan statistical areas (smsa) in 11 states. It measured exposure to members of another racial group. Results indicate that a redistribution of the White population toward more integrated neighborhoods gathered steam in the 1970s and a significant proportion of the Black population shifted away from established ghetto areas, where exposure to Whites was relatively low, into middle- and upper-income areas, where exposure rates were relatively high. The segregation of Blacks and Whites (including Hispanics) is somewhat higher in metropolitan areas with a large Hispanic population, but the segregation of Blacks and Anglo Whites in those areas is significantly higher. The impact of fair housing laws is discussed, as is the bifurcation of the Black community into "haves" and "have nots." Tables of segregation indices for individual SMSAs are appended. (Ps)

Give credit where credit is due : increasing access to affordable mainstream credit using alternative data( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the vast accomplishments of the American credit system, approximately 35 million to 54 million Americans remain outside the credit system. For a variety of reasons, mainstream lenders have too little information on them to evaluate risk and thereby extend credit. As a result, those in most need of credit often turn to check cashing services and payday loan providers, with effective interest rates as high as 500 percent. The lact of reliable credit places them at a great disadvantage in building assets (such as homes, small businesses, or loans for education) and thereby improving their lives. This study offers a feasible market solution to bring those outside the mainstream credit fold within it. Mainstream lenders can use "alternative" or "nontraditional" data, including payment obligations such as rent, gas, electric, insurance, and other recurring obligations, to evaluate the risk profile of a potential borrower. Our findings indicate that alternative data, if widely incorporated into credit reporting, can bridge the information gap on financial risk for millions of Americans. More concretely, considering that many of these millions outside the credit mainstream are poorer, less advantaged Americans, the information can direct markets toward a faster alleviation of poverty in this country"--Executive summary (p.2)
Report on housing counseling agencies by Kathleen G Heintz( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A HUD-sponsored study of nine housing counseling agencies found that these agencies make their clients' interests their highest priority in that they consider themselves effective when they can help clients resolve housing problems or achieve housing goals. Counseling sometimes produced benefits for landlords, mortgage lenders, and mortgage insurers as well. The study aimed to document reasonable housing counseling practices as well as counselor training procedures. The 9 agencies were chosen from a list of 30 identified by HUD staff as having highly competent counseling programs. The nine agencies varied considerably in terms of organizational structure, origins, size, funding, and mission. However, they were similar in the roles performed by housing counselors and in the content of counseling sessions. Counselors served as educators; facilitators; mediators; and in many cases, advocates for a family seeking help. Thus, they provide comprehensive help to families with severe housing problems. Counselors also address nonhousing problems, including financial and social problems. Housing counselors provide access to a wide range of social services and assistance programs, thereby linking families with the basic resources of the broader community
