Paralegals Section Meeting

Program Description:  Open Communities Alliance's September 2017 Out of Balance report shines a light on the opportunity gap in Connecticut and the role subsidized housing policy plays in generating and reinforcing it. Building on the work of historians and others who have documented the long history of government-sponsored segregation, this report maps "opportunity" by census tract and overlays the locations of government subsidized housing across a number of programs. OCA’s Executive Director, Erin Boggs, Esq., will present these findings and discuss the state’s need for continued investments in under-resourced, "lower" opportunity areas while adjusting housing program priorities and addressing exclusionary zoning in order to bring geographic balance to subsidized housing locations. She will also outline the legal obligations that require policy change.
