​Program ​Overview​​

​The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex/gender, familial status, and disability. Although age is not a protected class, there are a number of provisions of the Act that have particular importance for seniors and older individuals. This Continuing Legal Education program will focus on provisions of the state and federal fair housing laws that can be of particular relevance to those representing senior citizens, as well as people with disabilities.
