Protecting Your Right to Fair Housing

Working to break down barriers and build opportunities for the community since 1989

April is national Fair Housing Month. The federal Fair Housing Act was passed on April 11, 1968. 56 years later, federal and Nevada Fair Housing laws make it illegal to discriminate in the provision of housing or any housing-related service because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex/sexual orientation/gender identity, family status, and/or disability.

SSFHC has partnered with local jurisdictions in Northern and Southern Nevada, who are committed to creating a welcoming community and to affirmatively further fair housing for all residents of Nevada. To commemorate the passage of the federal Fair Housing Act and to observe April as national Fair Housing Month, please join SSFHC and jurisdictions as community events are conducted throughout the month of April.

Making A Difference

How does testing make for a better community?

“My experience as a tester gave me the very real sense that I was helping to make a difference in my community. No one should ever have to experience discrimination and SSFHC is working to make sure that day comes.” – Joel Lindsey,
SSFHC Education and Outreach Coordinator
