The Fair Housing Council of the Capital Region, Inc.
During October The Fair Housing Council celebrates 46 years of the Community Reinvestment Act!
The CRA requires banks to meet the credit needs of all communities, including LMI areas, consistent with the safety and soundness of the banks’ operations. The law created a framework wherein community organizations, banking regulatory agencies and financial institutions interact in assessing how well a financial institution is meeting the needs of disadvantaged communities. This framework has proven critical in promoting greater investment and service in areas that banks might otherwise disregard
The Fair Housing Council advocates to ensure accessible and fair housing opportunities for all persons without regard to race, color, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, family status, presence of children, disability, ancestry or marital status.
The Fair Housing Council is your advocate working to ensure that you and your family have the right to live in the home of your choice and your dreams. Information is also provided regarding social services and assistance programs throughout the region.
The Fair Housing Council's mission is to provide comprehensive services that will affirmatively address and promote fair housing (anti-discrimination) rights.
