Bringing Equity to Housing Choice in Chicago

 

Chicago Blueprint for Fair Housing

 

Chicago’s residential segregation and fair housing challenges are driven by the root causes of systemic racism and poverty. Community conversations and extensive data analysis confirm that barriers to housing today perpetuate Chicago’s residential segregation, creating a cycle of instability with longlasting consequences that not only impact individuals, but the entire city.

Building on these findings of fair housing challenges, City and community partners collectively identified historic policies and decisions, as well as root causes, that can inform future action. Together, the City of Chicago, led by the Department of Housing, Commission on Human Relations, Office of the Mayor with additional agencies involved in implementation, and the CHA will focus their affirmative fair housing work on eight goals with complementary strategies and actions.
