Strategies for LGBTQI+ and Gender Identity Housing Discrimination Investigations

November 17, 2021 | 2:00 - 4:00 PM ET

Join the National Fair Housing Training Academy (NFHTA) and the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) in a conversation focusing on strategies for LGBTQI+ and gender identity housing discrimination investigations.

In January 2021, President Biden issued Executive Order 13988 on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation, that extends federal laws that prohibit sex discrimination to include sexual orientation and gender identity. Based on this order, HUD's Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity willfully enforce the Fair Housing Act to address discrimination inclusive of sexual orientation and gender identity; this applies to FHAP and FHIP agencies as well. This forum will outline how sexual orientation and gender identity are covered by the Fair Housing Act, establish what constitutes a prima facie case of discrimination, provide some training to improve cultural competency in this field, and specify testing and investigative tools that may be utilized to investigate cases that allege discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Who Should Attend?

This forum is targeted to Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) organizations, Fair Housing Assistance Program (FHAP) agencies, legal services providers, agencies that provide services to the LGBTQI+ community, housing providers, and other interested fair housing partners.
