Sarah and I go deep into the state of the housing market in Chicago. We explore the unfavorable lending practices and often times bias underwriting standards toward Black & Brown future homeowners. We discuss ways in which NHS Chicago is helping current homeowners, future homeowners, and how they are holding financial institutions accountable for better lending practices for in these communities. And the need to increase racial diversity among decision-makers.
Sarah serves as the Public Policy & Innovation Strategist at Neighborhood Housing Service of Chicago.
