Lexington Fair Housing Council

April is National Fair Housing Month and commemorates the 46th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act of 1968. The Fair Housing Act, passed in 1968, provides equal opportunity to all who buy, sell, rent, finance, or insure housing. It broadens the real estate market by making all housing and property available to all Kentuckians and protects the individual’s basic right to choose where to live. During the month of April, we will be providing a variety of Fair Housing events that you will find listed below.
