Across the landscape of housing in Louisville, it is clear that disinvestment, redlining, inequities, and ongoing reductions in funding for all aspects of affordable housing have caused sharp inequities. This is most certainly true in the rental sector and immediate action is needed. We must increase national, HUD Section 8, and other forms of rental subsidy. Section 8 rental subsidies create jobs by spurring property development (construction jobs) and ensure that current and future generations will have access to safe, affordable housing.
