Building Equity Through Source of Income Protection

Mar 17, 2021, 02:26 PM

Source of income (SOI) discrimination is a practice by which landlords, owners, and real estate brokers refuse to rent to prospective tenants seeking to pay for housing with housing assistance vouchers, subsidies, or other forms of public assistance.

In this episode of the Doorsteps podcast, OHFA's Kelan Craig and Dr. Cody Price are joined by Bexley's Mayor Ben Kessler and Council President Lori Ann Feibel to discuss how Bexley became the 6th community in Ohio and the first in central Ohio to pass a SOI protection ordinance and why this legislation matters. They discuss how SOI protections help support community efforts to build equity.
