Conversations on Emerging Issues
Engage with the Nation's top fair housing professionals on issues that matter to you.
National Fair Housing Forums are live monthly online conversations between an esteemed panel of fair housing experts around emerging fair housing issues in communities like yours. Forums allow you to engage in multi-directional interactions with HUD and its partners as together we work to reveal and benchmark best practices. Each forum contains a curated list of resources that reinforce key takeaways.
National Fair Housing Forums are designed for HUD-funded fair housing partners (i.e., FHIP and FHAP practitioners), and their fair housing partners (e.g., housing counselors, legal service providers and civil rights advocates).
