EL103: Module 3 - Fair Housing
This module has two sub modules. Module 3.1 provides information about the history of civil rights and discriminatory practices in the financial and housing industry, as well as the early role of the federal government and lending institutions. We discuss the key provisions of the Fair Housing Act and the impact of the law when discussing client’s rights. We cover terms and concepts when discussing ways to identify and overcome violations of fair housing laws, and we explain the seven protected characteristics. We discuss which entities are subject to and which are exempt from compliance with the fair housing laws. Module 3.2 identifies resources for fair housing enforcement. We explain the process of reporting fair housing law violations and how to go through the complaint process. Counselors will know how to recognize obstacles to fair housing and how to identify signs of housing discrimination. We discuss the requirements of marketing agency programs and services, and how to affirmatively further fair housing.
