CDBG program promotes fair housing via social media campaign
Published on August 16, 2021
To bring awareness to fair housing practices, the Weld County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is engaging in a proactive social media campaign.
“Fair housing is a right shared by all Weld County residents,” said Steve Moreno, Weld County Commissioner Chair. “We must continue to work to eliminate housing discrimination in all its forms, and letting residents know more about the act, provisions and history can help further this mission.”
To promote fair housing practices, the county encourages potential homeowners and renters to be aware of their rights under the National Fair Housing Law. This law, passed in 1969 by President Lyndon B. Johnson, prohibits discrimination against any person on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, disability, familial status or national origin when selling, renting or financing a home or apartment unit.
Fair housing information along with best practices will be showcased on Weld County Government’s Facebook and Twitter pages throughout August.
