In the Las Vegas metropolitan area, the Black homeownership rate was 33 points lower than it was for white households in 2019 due to historic and ongoing discrimination that have contributed to disparities in factors such as availability of credit. To close the gap, the Make Homes Possible program, a coalition of Las Vegas organizations and community leaders, will help 25,000 Black families buy homes over the next decade. “We’ve counseled hundreds of people so far. Our numbers are small now, but that’s because we’re gearing people up to put them in the homeownership pipeline,” said Shanta Patton-Golar, leader of the Make Homes Possible coalition.
