Redlining in Des Moines is a project of the Polk County Housing Trust Fund (PCHTF) to confront our community's history of housing discrimination and pursue solutions.


Kendyl Larson and Lauren Johnson developed this online resource during the pandemic after an in person exhibit on housing discrimination, Undesign the Redline by designing the WE, was forced to close.

PCHTF is the comprehensive planning, funding and advocacy organization for affordable housing in Polk County, Iowa. Visit us online at
