Fair Housing Conference
Beginning in 2005, the Council has been a sponsor of the annual Fair Housing Conference, providing keynote speakers and presentations on fair housing issues. Each year an average of 150-200 people are educated on the Fair Housing Act and its implications for Tennesseans with disabilities.
For 2017, the Council partnered with the Tennessee Fair Housing Council to support the annual Fair Housing Matters Conferenceand provide scholarships for Tennesseans with disabilities and their family members to attend the conference. The conference held in Nashville in April educates people with and without disabilities about housing discrimination and their rights under the Fair Housing Act.
The date for the 2018 Fair Housing Matters Conference is April 17, 2018.
