Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana

A national fair housing group says Deutsche Bank and two other businesses are less likely to maintain foreclosed, bank-owned homes in majority-black areas of 30 cities, including Indianapolis and Gary.

A new version of a federal complaint, out this week, expands the investigation.

The National Fair Housing Alliance and 19 local organizations first filed a complaint with the Department of Housing and Urban Development against Deutsche Bank in 2014.

The Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana is among a coalition of housing groups accusing Fannie Mae of racial discrimination nationwide.

Executive Director Amy Nelson says her groups has cited 78 foreclosed properties in black and Latino communities in Indiana they say Fannie Mae has failed to properly maintain and market.

Nelson says Fannie Mae was warned about the issue as early as 2009 and has yet to address the issue.
