OHRC submission on the More Homes Built Faster Act: Rent to own
From: More Homes Built Faster Act – OHRC submissions

Every effort made to create innovative pathways to homeownership must be exercised without discrimination.3
Rent-to-own arrangements present a powerful tool to address decades of discrimination in accommodation that have prevented Code-protected groups from building generational wealth.
