Study finds Indians face discrimination on housing
Wednesday, November 19, 2003

In eight key locations for urban Indians in the U.S. such as Minnesota, Montana and New Mexico, American Indians faced discrimination as compared to white renters 29% of the time, according to a study performed by the federal government.

A researcher for the Urban Institute said that the housing discrimination Indians faced was much more extreme than that of other groups such as Blacks and Asians who are typically faced with more subtle tactics such as increased application costs and increased rents.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development commissioned the study.
