Fair Housing Program
Recent legislation from the Supreme Court and HUD's "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing" rule will all impact the real estate industry. Here's how.
REALTOR® Action Center has Fair Housing Month articles, posters, and information about how your association can invite and sustain diversity.
District of Columbia federal court determines that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development did not have the authority from the Fair Housing Act to create its disparate impact rule and so vacated the rule.
Federal court determines no RESPA violation for referrals from real estate brokerage to its affiliated title companies.

Here are some things you and your REALTOR® association can do to recognize Fair Housing Month:
- Sponsor a local Fair Housing Month poster contest. Afterward, make association calendars out of the artwork.
- Publish the REALTOR® Fair Housing Declaration and post it in your office and/or association.
- Use the Fair Housing Proclamation and have your local government proclaim April as Fair Housing Month.
- Display the 2017 Fair Housing Focus Poster in your office and/or association.
