The Hollman Consent Decree was the negotiated settlement in 1995 of a class action lawsuit, Hollman v Cisneros, filed in the fourth district federal judicial court in 1992 by the Legal Aid Society of Minneapolis and the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, alleging racial discrimination by the City of Minneapolis and its public housing authority.

Despite the decrees call for the relocation of the public housing residents of the four north-side housing projects to areas of lower race and poverty concentrations, the majority of families relocated to other neighborhoods on the north side of Minneapolis, and more than half moved to neighborhoods within three miles of the project site.

This analysis explores and examines data collected by Dr. Edward G. Goetz in a study compiled by the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs at the University of Minnesota in 1999 (Goetz, 2002, Report No. 3).
