Learn what you need to know to stay compliant with Federal Fair Housing
Fair Housing Essentials (FHE) provides participants with a working background in the requirements of the Fair Housing Act and other important civil rights statutes that pertain to Fair Housing compliance. The Fair Housing Act covers all rental housing with more than four units. It makes no distinction between federally assisted housing and market rate housing. If you are involved with a federal housing program, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act applies as well.
In addition to lectures, the program has participants work together to explore actual civil rights case studies. The instructor assumes the role of an investigator and assesses hypothetical “fines” for incorrect or discriminatory actions, increasing the learning power of the program.
Participation in the FHE program can be the difference between compliance and non-compliance and between expensive lawsuits and lowered risk.
