SHIBA - State of Housing in Black America

  • 13 Feb 2023

SHIBA BACKGROUND AND HISTORY

The Term SHIBA, is the acronym used to represent our focus on the State of Housing in Black America (SHIBA).

The recent collapse of the housing market and subsequent recession has been particularly devastating to the Black community. Not only has our homeownership rate plummeted, but, accessing mortgage credit has become nearly impossible outside of government insured programs such as the FHA and VA. Unemployment also remains high, in the double digits for Blacks, and vacant and abandoned properties clutter our communities. The SHIBA Report is designed to shed light on many of the issues centered on foreclosure mitigation, neighborhood blight, and disaster recovery for Blacks. 

We'll take a dive into what is going on in our markets.
