Idaho has made great progress in addressing discrimination in housing through a combination of education and enforcement tools. Idaho Housing is proud to participate with all fair housing stakeholders to promote productive cooperation and collaboration. Together we work to create an Idaho where the world is welcome. Below are a few key accomplishments:
Outreach and Education
Idaho Housing's efforts to affirmatively further fair housing include partnering with others to increase awareness of fair housing law through conferences, sponsored training opportunities, and other outreach materials.
The Annual Idaho Fair Housing Forum Conference is coordinated and hosted by Forum members and our many partners. Each year we focus on what housing and community stakeholders need to know about the Fair Housing Act, Support Animals, Reasonable Accommodations and Limited English Proficiency Compliance Requirements. As we move forward, conference topics will expand to consider requirements and implementation of the new Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) template introduced by HUD.
