Training and Technical Assistance

The Fair Housing Justice Center contracts with other public and private fair housing enforcement programs to provide technical assistance, training, and other tools to upgrade and strengthen fair housing law enforcement.

In 2012, the FHJC contracted with the Metropolitan Milwaukee Fair Housing Council to assist with the implementation of a national demonstration project. The two-year project, Investigative Support for Testing and Enforcement Programs (ISTEP), is sponsored by HUD and designed to provide training, technical assistance, and resources to test coordinators working in private fair housing organizations located in different parts of the country.

The FHJC continues to provide training, technical assistance, and other resources to organizations and agencies involved in fair housing enforcement in order to:

  • Expand the use of testing as an investigative tool to gather evidence in response to housing discrimination complaints;
  • Elevate systemic testing as the highest priority in fair housing law enforcement;
  • Promote a more creative, strategic, and effective use of testing; and
  • Advocate vigorous, coordinated, and sustained fair housing enforcement activity in all of our nation’s metropolitan regions.

If you are interested in training or technical assistance, please email us at fhjc@fairhousingjustice.org or call (212) 400-8201.
