Race discrimination found for renting properties in Waterloo

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Results are in for a Waterloo fair housing test performed by The Iowa Civil Rights Commission.

The commission completed the tests during the month of April. The focus was on family- type and race discrimination. 

20 housing units in the Waterloo area were randomly selected for the test.

Six of those 20 indicated some evidence of possible discrimination.

The commission hopes to resolve these issues through discussion, and consultation.
