From ABC 10 News San Diego:
The San Diego Housing Commission Thursday began a pilot program to assist middle-income Black, Indigenous and people of color first- time homebuyers.
Homeownership rates for many households of color are significantly lower than other racial groups. An SDHC-commissioned Urban Institute study of city of San Diego households found homeownership rates of 29.1% among Black households and 35.2% among Latino households, compared with 54.8% among white households.
"Middle-income residents are often overlooked, but this program invests in creating more access for first-time homebuyers of color," said San Diego City Council President Pro Tem Monica Montgomery Steppe, co-chair of the City-County Reinvestment Task Force. "I'm excited that this significant opportunity will help eliminate the racial wealth gap and work toward an equitable future of homeownership."
