New Fair Housing for Local Governments Manual Available

Cover of manual entitled A Fair Housing Guide for Local Governments and open manual with page regarding nuisance ordinances.

HECP has developed a new comprehensive manual for local governments on their responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act. This guide is designed to provide local
governments, including elected officials, municipal staff, zoning board members, and solicitors, an introduction to fair housing as it relates to their role in setting and
implementing local policy concerning residential uses. The manual includes detailed information on fair housing issues in zoning and land use, design and construction requirements, nuisance and crime-free housing ordinances, affirmatively furthering fair housing, and increasing fair housing choice for residents and constituents.
