National Fair Housing Forums
Conversations on Emerging Issues


Person iconWho Should Attend

Most forums are relevant to all FHIP and FHAP partner staff. When a forum is designed for specific FHIP and FHAP staff roles, the audience is noted (e.g. executive director, investigator, testing coordinator).

Speech bubble iconWhat to Expect

Forums are online conversations designed to allow multi-directional conversations between HUD and its FHIP and FHAP partners around emerging fair housing issues regarding processing complaints, conducting investigations, and managing agencies. Topics will evolve based on partner needs and interests, and will include conversations on race, assistance animals, accessibility, design and construction, testing, and governance.
