SWFHC works with jurisdictions and groups across the country to identify and address fair housing issues through research and data. Some of the Analysis of Impediments (AI) and Fair Housing and Equity Analysis (FHEA) that we have conducted can be found at the link below.
Check out this collaborative project between Southwest Fair Housing Council, the University of Arizona Planning Department, and the College of Public Health. This Story Map is the beginning of an effort to understand the opportunities and challenges encountered in Tucson neighborhoods. The interviews were conducted by graduate students as part the Family and Child Health in Urban Settings service-learning course.
Animals and Fair Housing
A great video put together by our friends at the Bazelon Center about Fair Housing and animals. This is a great primer about the responsibilities of land lords and tenants in asking for an animal as a reasonable accommodation
Due to a renewed focus from HUD regarding Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) as well as recent developments in the courts, we have decided to share some resources and material compiled by the National Fair Housing Alliance.
Southwest Fair Housing Council (SWFHC) is committed to eliminating all forms of illegal discrimination related to housing.
Through our research, advocacy, enforcement, community outreach, passionate staff and diverse board, we help more people achieve equal access to housing and we are recognized as one of the superior fair housing organizations in the nation.
