Fair Housing Accessibility FIRST
The Institute for Human Centered Design, in collaboration with LCM Architects and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), is providing design and construction technical assistance on the Fair Housing Act of 1988 to builders, design professionals, housing authorities, fair housing organizations, advocates, service providers and consumers.
The goal is to increase compliance with the Act through technical assistance, training and web based resources. The Institute for Human Centered Design, as the Design and Construction Resource Center, will respond to questions regarding fair housing compliance through a national toll-free number 1-888-FH1RST1 (1-888-341-7781).
The Fair Housing Accessibility FIRST Program will be offering information on training events, resources and additional assistance through its web site FairHousingFirst.org.
