Fair Housing – Module 3

June 7 , 8:00 am EDT December 30 , 5:00 pm EST

Self-paced, available on demand through December 30.

To help housing counselors take and pass the HUD Certification Exam, NCRC has launched a new self-paced HUD Prep E-Learning Series made available to you online. This series is available on-demand for you to access at your convenience. 

This module has two sub-modules. Module 3.1 provides information about the history of civil rights and discriminatory practices in the financial and housing industry, as well as the early role of the federal government and lending institutions. We discuss the key provisions of the Fair Housing Act and the impact of the law when discussing client’s rights. We cover terms and concepts when discussing ways to identify and overcome violations of fair housing laws, and we explain the seven protected characteristics. We discuss which entities are subject to and which are exempt from compliance with the fair housing laws. Module 3.2 identifies resources for fair housing enforcement. We explain the process of reporting fair housing law violations and how to go through the complaint process. Counselors will know how to recognize obstacles to fair housing and how to identify signs of housing discrimination. We discuss the requirements of marketing agency programs and services, and how to affirmatively further fair housing.

This training is part of a six-part series to help housing counselors pass the HUD exam. This training is self-paced and can be taken at the convenience of your schedule. Register to get access.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
