The recording and materials from the April 2022 fair housing webinars are now available. This webinar series was designed to educate disability stakeholders and fair housing partners on Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) and community engagement throughout the fair housing planning process. These webinars were sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), Office of Fair Housing & Equal Opportunity (FHEO), and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration for Community Living (ACL).
