FAIR HOUSING COMPLIANCE

A COMPREHENSIVE COURSE FOR MANAGERS OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING: The Fair Housing Compliance (FHC) course is a comprehensive program offered by the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA) for property management staff. NAHMA’s Fair Housing Compliance course trains managers to understand complex fair housing regulations.

Each participant will receive a copy of the NAHMA Fair Housing manual. The one-day program is composed of one day instruction and a two hour exam. Individuals must pass this exam to obtain the FHC designation. The FHC is a requirement for NAHMA’s National Affordable Housing Professional (NAHP) certification program.

All participants who successfully complete this course and exam will receive a FHC certificate and pin, and be listed in NAHMA’s Online Credential Directory.

FAIR HOUSING WORKSHOP

Fair Housing is more than just federal protected classes. When did Fair Housing become a law? How many laws and amendments are there? Are there additional state and local Fair Housing Laws?

Often, apartment owners and managers will be confronted with prospects who want to know about the race, ethnicity or familial status of the residents in their community. An inappropriate response to such a question could make one liable for discrimination and result in a costly lawsuit. Be able to explain the importance of accurate records.

In this course we will address these and many other questions, taking Fair Housing “Do’s and Don’ts” on a case by case basis. Through discussion and class participation, students will learn how to process applications and how to make informed decisions about who is eligible and how to treat individuals with disabilities. We will learn the difference between intent and effect and that personal statements can be discriminatory. We will also learn how you can be held responsible, personally.
