Fair Housing: A Better Answer than Busing. A Plan for Louisville and Jefferson County.
Kentucky Commission on Human Rights, Louisville.
In this paper, the Kentucky Commisssion on Human Rights outlines ways in which housing-related institutions and agencies can revise their policies and procedures to reverse the trend towards housing segregation. Recommendations are made to the city and county with regard to how Section 8 housing assistance programs can be used to promote desegregation. The need for and possible implementation of a measuring standard to use in the location of new housing is described. The necessity for Federal leadership and the responsibility of lending institutions is explained. Kentucky Housing Corporation policy is criticized and an appeal is made to business, industry, citizen, and real estate groups to adopt policies which will further and facilitate housing desegregation. It is implied that if local real estate groups do not cooperate voluntarily, the Commission may find it necessary to take court action towards the housing desegregation problem. (WI)
