Feds: Dubuque Had Bias Against Blacks In Housing
Updated: Friday, June 21 2013, 06:28 PM CDT
DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) -- A federal review has concluded that the city of Dubuque intentionally made changes to its low-income housing program to make it harder for blacks from Chicago to qualify.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development said in a letter this week that its review found evidence that Dubuque discriminated against African Americans based on race.
The review says policy changes starting in 2007 gave advantages to applicants who were from predominantly white Iowa. It suggests they were in response to racial tension caused by high-profile crimes that involved black perpetrators. It says the public perceived that newcomers from Chicago were committing crimes at higher rates, and the city took steps to stop the influx.
Dubuque says that it "deeply regrets" the impact on blacks, but that it wasn't intended.
