Fair Housing

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 2015 Idaho Fair Housing Conference on April 14 and 15 in Boise will feature HUD Assistant Secretary of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity Gustavo Velasquez and Idaho’s U.S. Attorney Wendy Olson. The conference will focus on the Fair Housing Act, Support Animals and Reasonable Accommodations and Limited English Proficiency Compliance Requirements. It will run from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Mountain Time, and be webcast and recorded for those outside the Boise area. Fair Housing Forum training events are planned throughout Idaho in Moscow (4/9), Lewiston (4/10), Boise (4/14, 15), Idaho Falls (5/6). See details and registration links at www.fairhousingforum.org
