URBAN COUNTY CELEBRATES CDBG WEEK AND FAIR HOUSING MONTH

The Fair Housing Act protects the rights of all Americans to access housing regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, family status or disability. 

Commissioners Court proclaimed the month of April as Fair Housing Month. The Act, Title VIII of the Civil Right Act of 1968, has been in effect since April 11, 1968.  Since then, the Act has been amended to include the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development continues to enforce the Fair Housing Act to ensure that every American retains the fundamental right to choose where he or she lives, raises a family, or owns a home. 

Adding to the important role the Act plays in our community is the National Community Development Association, which designates the week of April 17 – 22 as National Community Development Week.
