1969 Volpe Fair Housing in USDOT-Funded Projects Policy
March 04, 2022 | Jeff Davis
This is a PDF from the Nixon Library of two documents. First: a draft press release from U.S. Transportation Secretary John Volpe announcing that all projects funded and approved by USDOT would have to not only provide replacement housing but equal opportunity fair housing, as provided by the 1968 highway act (the former) and the 1968 fair housing act (the latter). Second: an explanatory cover letter from Volpe to White House domestic policy advisor Pat Moynihan.
