Baton Rouge Community Revitalization Fund Application

Posted on 12. Feb, 2014 by

foreclosurehousesignIn June 2013, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development reached an historic conciliation agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. The agreement resulted from a federal housing discrimination complaint originally filed by the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA), GNOFHAC, and 12 other fair housing organizations around the country. The complaint alleged that Wells Fargo-owned properties in white neighborhoods were much better maintained and marketed than homes in African-American and Latino neighborhoods, which would be a violation of the Fair Housing Act. As part of the agreement, GNOFHAC will administer a fund to provide programs and services to promote homeownership, neighborhood stabilization, property rehabilitation, and development in communities of color.
