The mission of the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) is to eliminate housing discrimination, promote economic opportunity, and achieve diverse, inclusive communities by leading the nation in the enforcement, administration, development, and public understanding of federal fair housing policies and laws.

FHEO protects people from discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and familial status.  In addition, housing providers that receive HUD funding, have loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), as well as lenders insured by FHA, may be subject to HUD program regulations intended to ensure equal access of LGBT persons.

Fair Housing Partner,

Please join HUD Secretary Ben Carson and FHEO Acting Assistant Secretary Bryan Greene, on Tuesday, April 4, 2017, as we commemorate the 49th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. This year’s theme, “Fair Housing Equals Opportunity,” highlights the fact that equality in housing provides the foundation upon which aspirations can be achieved and affirms the continued relevance of the Fair Housing Act.

 Our keynote speaker, Malcolm “Mike” E. Peabody, Jr., has been unafraid to tackle intractable public policy problems. While working for President Nixon at HUD, Mike developed the enduring model for the Section 8 housing allowance program, now HUD’s largest program, which aims to give the poor some power over where they live, while trimming bureaucracy.

The Fair Housing Month Opening Ceremony will be held at HUD Headquarters, 451 7th Street S.W., Washington, DC 20410, in the Brooke-Mondale Auditorium at 2 p.m. E.D.T The program will also be delivered via webcast for guests unable to attend in person.  There is a short registration process for all guests.  Please register here . Thank you in advance for your attendance.  If you have any questions, please contact Karina Leake, via e-mail at fairhousingmonth@hud.gov
