Iowa Independent: Study Will Investigate Housing Discrimination in Waterloo

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

A study this month in Waterloo will determine whether families with
children are discriminated against when they rent property. People
posing as prospective tenants, married couples without children and
parents with children, will inquire about 20 properties advertised for
rent. They won't disclose their family status to landlords and
property owners unless asked. The study, by the Iowa Civil Rights
Commission and Waterloo Human Rights Commission, will determine
whether people with children are being discriminated against in their
housing search. Potential problems will be reviewed by the
commission's staff for possible corrective action.
