The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) designates April as National Fair Housing month. April 2019 marks the Fiftieth-First Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination in housing. The Fair Housing Act was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson on April 11, 1968 prohibiting discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status and national origin. The City of Greenville and their partners will sponsor the following Fair Housing seminars:

The second Fair Housing Seminar, designed for tenants, is scheduled for Tuesday, April 23rd at 11:30 am. This seminar will take place at the Greenville Housing Authority Training Room. The presenter is Mr. Gene Troy with the North Carolina Human Relations Commission.
