Report:  Minority homeownership lagging

June 20, 1998
Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White doesn't need a new national study on the state of America's housing to tell him minority home buying levels aren't as high as they should be. ``We have to do a better job educating people about the benefits,'' White said. ``We have to get the word out.''
     The report, released Saturday at the U.S. Conference of Mayors annual meeting, cites gaps between white and black home purchasing that could supply White and other city officials the grist for a wider dialogue.
