The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings and in other housing-related activities based on disability, among other protected classes. Generally, the Fair Housing Act applies to a broad range of persons and entities, including public housing agencies, property owners, landlords, housing managers, real estate agents, brokerage service agencies, and banks. This webinar will discuss Fair Housing Laws and Regulations as they apply to people living with disabilities and describe reasonable accommodations and modifications. This training will also identify resources available in the Washington D.C. area for people living with disabilities who are experiencing housing discrimination.
