Fair Housing Month is an annual, month-long celebration of the signing of the Fair Housing Act on April 11, 1968, by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The Office of Equity and Human Rights is recognizing the month in a variety of ways.

  • Utility bills will include an insert explaining a person’s fair housing rights in Iowa City.
  • A video training eligible for certification of one hour of fair housing training is available 24/7 online.
  • Finally, in collaboration with City Channel 4, a public service announcement has been created detailing fair housing rights.

If you feel you have experienced discrimination in housing on the basis of your age, color, creed, disability, gender identity, marital status, familial status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, presence or absence of dependents, or public assistance source of income, please call 319-356-5015 or email humanrights@iowa-city.org to learn more.
