The National Fair Housing Training Academy: Helping to Ensure Fair Housing for All
Even though the Fair Housing Act was adopted in 1968, housing discrimination continues to be a problem today. Each year, HUD receives approximately 10,000 fair housing discrimination complaints. National studies estimate that around one million incidences of discrimination in housing transactions occur each year. To eliminate discriminatory housing practices, allegations of housing discrimination must be investigated and resolved.
Sponsored and funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the National Fair Housing Training Academy (NFHTA) is the premier learning center for fair housing and civil rights. Since 2004, NFHTA has been offering a variety of courses that are taught by some of the foremost experts in fair housing enforcement, litigation, training, and research. NFHTA helps federal, state, and local agency investigators; real estate professionals; educators; attorneys; advocates; and other fair housing professionals enhance their fair housing expertise and investigation skills to eliminate housing discrimination.
