If you read our posts, you know that we occasionally address fair housing issues in community associations. Both the federal and state fair housing acts prohibit discrimination in the provision of housing and services based on a number of protected classifications, including race, color, religion, sex, familial status, or national origin. Unfortunately, discrimination in violation of the federal and state laws continues to occur regularly.

If you or your community have concerns about whether the fair housing laws apply to you, and what you can and should do about them, Arapahoe and Douglas Counties are sponsoring a joint program called Focus on Fair Housing on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at the Douglas County Events Center. Click here for more specific information.

In addition, we are available to consult with your association if you have specific fair housing questions.
