Overview: The Fair Chance in Housing Act

Wednesday, April 27 CE Pending 9:30am - 11:00am

Today, nearly one-third of the adult working age population in the U.S. has a conviction record. Many of these people have been denied housing, though most pose no threat to their communities. New Jersey’s Fair Chance in Housing Act (FCHA) remedies this form of discrimination by establishing a fair process for consideration of conviction histories during the application process. Join us for this interactive webinar that will provide an overview of FCHA, including effective implementation strategies and model forms that can be utilized by housing providers. Participants will also explore how conviction record screenings have disproportionately impacted communities of color, and consider ways to create discrimination-free housing environments.

This event is currently pending approval from the New Jersey Real Estate Commission. If this event is approved continuing education credit will automatically be issued to those who attend.

Continuing education credit will only be awarded to those who attend the event for the full amount of time and participate using the polling and/or Q&A features.
