Event Details

Housing owners, property managers, nonprofit transitional housing and shelter managers, members of condo and homeowner association boards, housing authority staff, renters, housing advocates – whatever your role, you must be familiar with the federal Fair Housing Act as well as state and local fair housing laws. This knowledge is critical to prevent costly violations and it also promotes good business practices. Workshop participants receive extensive free fair housing materials.

The Fair Housing Workshop "First Steps: Best Practices to Promote Fair Housing" is a powerpoint presentation designed to help housing providers be proactive - to prevent violations of the fair housing laws before they occur. We recommend that you take this class only once – for additional training, register for the advanced seminar. Attendees will gain insight into:

  • Fair housing enforcement agency roles and local fair housing laws
  • Unconscious bias
  • Advertising tips
  • Suggestions on developing and using nondiscriminatory application and tenant selection procedures
  • Guidelines for establishing and enforcing tenancy rules, rule violations and evictions
  • Claims of retaliation
  • Familial status issues, occupancy guidelines and housing for older persons 
  • Renting to people with disabilities--reasonable accommodations and modifications issues
  • Issues involving sexual orientation, gender identity, Section 8, and veterans/military
