The National Fair Housing Alliance Files Federal Lawsuit Against Travelers Indemnity Company for Failing to Provide Habitational Insurance to Apartment Owners
May 17 16
The National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) announced the filing of a federal lawsuit alleging race, sex, and source of income discrimination against Travelers Indemnity Company (Travelers) for failing to provide habitational insurance to apartment owners who rent to tenants who participate in the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. This lawsuit is the result of an investigation by NFHA that uncovered this discriminatory business practice. The denial of insurance coverage because tenants subsidize their rental payments with Housing Choice Vouchers is a violation of the Fair Housing Act and the District of Columbia Human Rights Act because it has a disproportionate adverse impact on African Americans and female-headed households in Washington, D.C. Travelers' business practices were discovered by NFHA's investigators, who contacted five independent insurance agencies that market and underwrite Travelers insurance policies in the D.C. area. The investigators sought insurance coverage for multi-family apartment buildings located in Southeast Washington, D.C. When the investigators mentioned that the tenants participate in the Housing Choice Voucher program, often referred to as 'Section 8,' every investigator was told that Travelers does not provide habitational insurance to apartment owners who rent to tenants using Section 8. The investigators were told to seek coverage from other insurance companies. Evidence gathered over ten months documented this ongoing pattern and practice of discrimination on the part of Travelers. Participants in the Housing Choice Voucher program use vouchers to find their own housing in the private rental market, including single family homes, townhouses and apartments. Participants are free to choose any housing that meets the program's requirements. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the local housing authority on behalf of the participant. The participant then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program. The HCV program gives families, seniors, people with disabilities and individuals the opportunity to find decent, safe and sanitary housing. On average, D.C. residents using HCV pay approximately 30% of their household income for rent, and the D.C. Housing Authority pays the rest of the rent directly to the landlord. Travelers' alleged practices and underwriting guidelines have a discriminatory impact on the District's most vulnerable households. Travelers' policies disproportionately harm African Americans and women and deter apartment owners who want to help house low-income families in Washington, D.C.
