Idaho Legal Aid has implemented a Fair Lending/Fair Housing Legal Advice Line to address issues or questions about housing discrimination. The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in the sale and rental of housing based on a person’s race, color, national origin, sex, religion, disability, or familial status (the presence of children under the age of 18). The Fair Lending/Fair Housing Legal Advice Line is funded by a Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In addition to a toll-free legal advice line, free public training opportunities and workshops are also available.
