Redlining was the practice by which lenders and/or insurance companies refused to service residents in certain areas based on their ethnicity, and the implications of that practice have widened the racial wealth gap. As a result of centuries of racial discrimination in the sale and financing of housing, the rate at which people of color have been able to own homes and build the economic legacy that homeownership affords, has been significantly impaired. Greenline Housing Foundation seeks to reverse the affects of redlining by providing down payment grants to qualified people of color. Through your generosity, we aim to make homeownership accessible to ethnic groups who have historically been legally and intentionally prevented from it. Greenline is repairing what years of discrimination and injustice have broken.
