A free training session on fair housing laws and procedures will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. April 12, 2019, at the University of Hawai‘i Maui College Ike Lea Building, Room 144, the county Department of Housing and Human Concerns announced.

The department’s Housing Division is hosting the event in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Hawaii Civil Rights Commission and Legal Aid Society of Hawaii.

The training is free and open to the public. It is well suited for landlords, renters, real estate agents, property managers, condominium owner association board members and others who may be housing or service providers.

The training will review federal and state fair housing laws, summarize fair housing complaint and investigation procedures and go into depth on special topics related to protected classes.

Fair housing laws prohibit housing discrimination based on a variety of protected classes. Federal protected classes include race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, familial status and disability. State laws also protect marital status, ancestry, age or HIV infection.
