NAACP, Housing Advocates Call For Inclusionary Housing Policies In Baltimore

What’s happening?

Civil rights leaders and housing advocates are threatening to complain to the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development if Baltimore officials do not commit to create inclusionary housing policies in the city, Tashi McQueen reports for AFRO News.

What specific policies are these leaders calling for?

The Baltimore chapter of the NAACP and the Inclusionary Housing Coalition urged Mayor Brandon Scott and City Council leaders to pass a February 2022 proposal that would require 10 percent of new housing development to be reserved for low-income residents, eliminate waivers exempting developers from the requirement, and create an Affordable Housing Offset Fund in the city. 

“It is the goal of the Baltimore NAACP to ensure that all people in this city have a fair shot and economic opportunity that is free from the burden of White supremacy,” said Kobi Little, president of the Baltimore NAACP, at a news conference on March 22. 

Anything else I should know? 

City Council President Nick Mosby expressed support for the now-expired bill, though Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said that as is, the legislation “failed to create affordable housing opportunities and encourage economic diversity across city neighborhoods.”

“I support an Inclusionary Housing Program for Baltimore, but the law needs to work,” Scott said. “My administration remains committed to working with the City Council and all stakeholders to enact new legislation.”
