The Inclusive Communities Project (ICP) resource page is for individuals and organizations seeking information about the conditions of racial and economic segregation and its relationship to housing opportunities. Through its own research, and its compilation of information and data from a variety of sources, ICP can help the student, the advocate, and the policy maker to understand how the issues of race discrimination, housing, education, health, and economic opportunity are related.
Below are links to selected websites, articles, and other organizational sites that deal with the issues of housing, race, and opportunity.
