ICP and Others Join in Support of TX Anti-Voucher Discrimination Bills

With the support of over forty (40) organizations, the Inclusive Communities Project seeks passage of SB 265 (Sen. West) and HB 1470 (Rep. Rodriguez), companion bills that would help protect Texans who use federal Housing Choice Vouchers when renting homes. ICP’s 2020 findings revealed that discrimination against Housing Choice Voucher users has increased since its 2017 report, which already showed a high percentage of landlords who deny qualified Dallas area applicants housing.
