WASHINGTON, DC — Today, on the one year anniversary of their initial complaint with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the National Fair Housing Alliance and four of its member organizations, the Denver Metro Fair Housing Center, Metro Fair Housing Services Inc. (Atlanta), Miami Valley Fair Housing Center (Dayton), and Housing Opportunities Project for Excellence, Inc. (Miami), announced that they have amended their federal housing complaint, alleging that Bank of America continues to maintain and market foreclosed homes in White neighborhoods in a much better manner than in African-American and Latino neighborhoods. Failing to maintain and market homes because of the racial or ethnic composition of the neighborhood can violate the federal Fair Housing Act.
