This report, prepared for the D.C. Department of Housing and Community Development, reviews the state of fair housing in Washington, D.C., identifies impediments to fair housing choice for District residents, and recommends specific actions to remove or reduce those impediments. Based on data analysis and discussions with key informants, the report finds that participants in the city's real estate market are not always aware of, or do not always comply with, fair housing laws. Targeted, direct action and outreach are needed to ensure that the District of Columbias housing market is fair to all.
