Bostock and Beyond: Practical Applications of LGBTQIA+ Fair Housing Protections

June 26, 2024 | 2:00 - 4:00 PM ET

If you are in a HUD-funded fair housing organization, a fair housing partner, or in the housing or lending industries, you won’t want to miss NFHTA’s June National Fair Housing Forum.

This forum will offer the opportunity to learn about vital tools and housing practices to help combat LGBTQIA+ housing discrimination.

In this forum, participants will:

  • Examine the LGBTQIA+ fair housing protections available under the Fair Housing Act’s sex-based protections, which include sexual orientation and gender identity 
  • Explore populations at greatest risk for discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, particularly youth, those who are transgender, and seniors
  • Explore the concept of intersectionality — that individuals may experience discrimination based on multiple protected characteristics
  • Recognize how federally funded housing must comply with HUD’s Equal Access Rule

Resources

This toolkit is composed of five modules:

The toolkit also includes two subsections:

 

Taken together, the five sections provide a comprehensive training regarding the rights, best practices, and policies that support the implementation of non-discrimination policies and practices concerning LGBTQIA+ individuals.

For those seeking guidance about a particular topic, each section can stand alone as a subject-specific resource. Additionally, the toolkit contains videos that explore scenarios to help you understand the content of the section. You can click on the navigation links on the left side of the page to link directly to specific section.

Nancy Williams, Community Development Program Manager with Buncombe County Planning, talks with Leonard and ZaKiya about the very important topic of fair housing in Buncombe County.
