The Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) takes an active role in the education and training of housing providers and housing consumers to ensure awareness of fair housing laws. Three free trainings on the Fair Housing Act with an emphasis on the formerly incarcerated are scheduled as follows:
Tucson - TO BE RESCHEDULED
Phoenix - TO BE RESCHEDULED
Flagstaff - TO BE RESCHEDULED
This training will cover HUD’s guidance about denying those who have criminal records access to housing can have a discriminatory effect and therefore violate the Fair Housing Act. It is geared toward housing professionals such as site managers, property owners, leasing agents, lenders, and housing authority staff; however, all classes are open to anyone that would like to attend. Continuing Education Units (CEU) for real estate professionals that need to fulfill this requirement are also provided. At the conclusion of this course, attendees will get a certificate of attendance.
This training is being conducted by the Southwest Fair Housing Council (SWFHC). It is a non-profit, tax-exempt fair housing organization based in Tucson, Arizona, providing services throughout Arizona.
