Housing Voucher Mobility: An Overlooked Fair Housing Issue

Alexander Polikoff, John Marshall Law Review, 2013, available here

“Sadly, forty-five years after the Fair Housing Act became law, our society is still plagued with unacceptably high levels of residential segregation.  For children growing up in high-poverty urban areas today, the consequences are in some ways worse than they were when Senator Mondale famously proclaimed “that the reach of the proposed law was to replace ghettos with truly integrated and balanced living patterns.”  This article will discuss those consequences and suggest how we might do something about them, even as we continue to work toward integrated and balanced living patterns by other means.”
