The fair housing training is part of a statewide campaign during April Fair Housing Month to educate the public about federal and Kentucky fair housing laws. Recent statistics have shown that discriminatory practices based on disability are on the rise. The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has stated that denying housing or evicting a victim of domestic violence may have basis to file a discrimination complaint based on sex (gender). The foresaid training will provide information on reasonable accommodations and modifications for qualified individuals with a disability; and will cover HUD’s guidance to refrain from discrimination against a victim of domestic violence.
