Information
RECOMMENDATION
Recognizing the month of May 2021, as Fair Housing Month.
BACKGROUND
Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, prohibits discrimination in housing and declares it a national policy to provide, within constitutional limits, for fair housing in the United States. The principle of Fair Housing is not only national law and national policy, but a fundamental human concept and entitlement for all Americans.
DISCUSSION
The National Fair Housing Law provides an opportunity for all Americans to recognize that complete success in the goal of equal housing opportunity can only be accomplished with the help and cooperation of all Americans.  Many of the grants the County accepts require us to complete at least two (2) activities on an annual basis to further fair housing.  One such activity is the adoption of this proclamation and the other activity is the publication of a public notice in the local newspaper.
