About the event
Open Communities' Fair Housing 101 presentation covers the principle fair housing rights and responsibilities that both renters and housing providers need to know. This introduction covers the broad protections in the federal Fair Housing Act, gives an overview of local protections in Illinois as well as in Cook County, and helps community members understand how to recognize violations and take action. Additional topics include reasonable accommodations for tenants, sources of income protections, and rights of those with prior justice involvement when applying for housing.
