2019 Fair Housing Seminar (Ellsworth)

April is Fair Housing Month

April 2019 marks the 51st anniversary of the 1968 landmark Fair Housing Act. Each year the Maine Human Rights Commission (MHRC) participates in activities to educate the public about fair housing law and prevent discrimination in housing. This year we are holding provider workshops in three locations across Maine: Augusta, Portland, Ellsworth

The course, conducted by the Maine Human Rights Commission (“MHRC”) in conjunction with Pine Tree Legal Assistance and Disability Rights Maine, will provide an overview of Fair Housing Law. Housing providers who complete the course will obtain a basic understanding of rights and responsibilities under state and federal law. Who should take the class? Landlords, property managers, leasing consultants, owners of manufactured housing, the general public; anyone who sells, leases, owns, or manages residential property.
