Fair Housing Program
HUD has formalized its recognition of discriminatory effects liability under the Fair Housing Act. An article on the REALTOR® Action Center explains HUD's proposed test.
How did the Lehigh Valley Association of REALTORS® respond to a Fair Housing challenge?
The Fair Housing Focus includes advice on reporting acts of discrimination, information on multicultural real estate organization meetings, NAR diversity, smart growth and housing opportunity grants, and ideas for Fair Housing Month.

Taking the view that even a single allegation of discrimination is one too many, the Lehigh Valley Association of REALTORS® in Pennsylvania worked with community groups to institute a hard-hitting campaign to educate its members about Fair Housing.
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.
