(Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968).
Fair Housing in Kentucky
Fair Housing laws ensure that all individuals and families have the same opportunities for safe, affordable housing. Having a safe, stable, quality home is a fundamental human need. A home provides the foundation for other successful outcomes—to get a better education, live healthier, and have access to better jobs. Where a person lives affects their social and cultural norms, as well as their livelihood.“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
~Martin Luther King, Jr.There are still significant strides in fair housing practices to be made before all presence of discrimination is eliminated in the housing markets.Affordable housing makes us stronger; it opens doors. Together we can affirm and improve our commitment to fair housing.The
