The Texas Tribune recently quoted Professor Rigel Oliveri on issues of integration and affordable housing in Dallas. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced new rules in July that emphasize the importance of ending housing segregation. Professor Oliveri said that while fair housing laws were intended to promote racial integration, years of government affordable housing policy have actually entrenched segregated patterns. Professor Oliveri said local governments will now be provided with data to assist them in implementing affordable housing programs in a manner that encourages integration, but whether this will have any effect remains to be seen.
