Fair Housing investigation and enforcement is back with new leadership at FHEO. The protected class of sex has been officially broadened to include sexual orientation and gender identity. More questions are being asked about meaningful access for persons with Limited English Proficiency, Reasonable Accommodation Policies, and Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plans. Important HUD initiatives that were repealed or replaced by the prior administration have been reinstated including the 2013 Disparate Impact Rule and the 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Initiative. VAWA reauthorization is just around the corner with additional requirements likely. Join us for an update on these and other topics including lingering issues with COVID-19, HUD’s sexual harassment in housing initiative, Fair Housing violations in signage and on-line advertising, Rural Development’s enforcement initiative for 504 Compliance, the Census Bureau tools for AFHMP’s and Language Assistance Plans, how owners are implementing the 2020 guidance service and emotional support animals, and the status of the draft 27061 Race and Ethnicity form where mixed race is directly addressed. Ask your burning questions on Fair Housing and get the answers you need in order to stay in compliance. [Topics subject to change.]
