A reader pointed out this Landmark agreement.





New York’s Westchester County:

The suburban county just north of New York City agreed to create hundreds of affordable homes in heavily white communities and encourage nonwhites to move in.

“The settlement will have a major impact on the way federal housing and community development funds are used throughout the country,” the center said.

Federal housing officials depicted the decision as a warning sign they would step up enforcement on communities that accept federal money or housing redevelopment; HUD funds such as (CDBG) Community Development Block Grant program.

So if I’m reading this right: any city in any state that accepts HUD money must make available homes in that community for minorities in any zip code/neighborhood.

This should be interesting to follow.
