Fair Housing Awards

The Wisconsin Fair Housing Network will be presenting two fair housing awards at AHFE 2018. You are invited to nominate individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions in furthering fair housing. Fair housing occurs when people have a like range of housing choices consistent with their income and needs, regardless of their race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, lawful source of income, disability, familial status, or status as a victim of domestic abuse, sexual assault, or stalking. Furthering fair housing is taking action to reverse the harmful effects discrimination and segregation has had over time. You may nominate yourself or any organization or individual. You may also make more than one nomination. The nomination categories are:

  1. Individual Fair Housing Award
