Technical training for architects, developers, building inspectors and other interested parties on the federal Fair Housing Act design and construction requirements for multi-family properties. Eective March 1991, the federal Fair Housing Act required 7 elements for accessibility. Recent studies have found that despite the passage of time since the law’s implementation, violations continue to occur. This training will also include guidance on “visitable” features for townhouses and single family homes. These types of homes are typically not covered by FHA. The intent of visitability is to promote inclusiveness and access for all. This is a training you will not want to miss.
