National Fair Housing Forums: Conversations on Emerging Issues

Register Today | On the Brink: The Looming Eviction Crisis of the COVID-19 Pandemic - June 16, 2021

Join the National Fair Housing Training Academy (NFHTA) and the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) in a National Fair Housing Forum focusing on the impact of the eviction moratorium during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a disparate impact on people of color and those in other protected classes, resulting in higher rates of infection and higher rates of unemployment. This has a profound impact on renters of color, who are much more vulnerable to losing their homes through eviction, especially as eviction moratoria are lifted and assistance programs end or fail to adequately reach them.

This forum will contain information about housing assistance programs that may help prevent eviction, specify how eviction could be a fair housing violation, and provide resources and tools that fair housing practitioners, attorneys, and housing counselors can utilize to combat evictions that violate the Fair Housing Act.

Note: NFHTA’s July National Fair Housing Forum will address the pending foreclosure crisis.
