The Fair Housing Project of Legal Aid of North Carolina is the state’s only statewide full-serve fair housing organization. The Project works in four main areas:
- Providing education and outreach on fair housing issues to residents, advocates and service providers throughout North Carolina;
- Offering legal representation to individuals who have been discriminated against;
- Conducting research into fair housing and predatory lending; and
- Conducting fair housing testing to determine possible discrimination based on race, disability, familial status, and other grounds.
The Fair Housing Project provides services to members of all protected classes, with special emphasis upon underserved areas and populations including immigrants; residents who are non-English speaking or have limited English proficiency; rural residents; persons with disabilities, with emphasis upon persons with HIV/AIDS; homeless individuals; and persons residing in areas with large concentrations of people of color.
