The Miami Valley Fair Housing Center (MVFHC) provides assistance to people who request an investigation into a situation when they think or feel that their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status or disability (or their association with members of any of these groups) was the basic motivation for differential treatment given by anyone associated with their search for housing.
Professional counseling and guidance are available to individuals who encounter discrimination in their search for housing, including informing consumers of their options under FHAA and providing support for consumers while going through the process of asserting their housing rights. MVFHC staff are not attorneys. Staff cannot and do not offer legal advice.
MVFHC offers an aggressive testing program to expose discriminatory practices in apartment rentals and real estate purchasing.
Educational programs are also available to inform consumers of their rights and professionals of their responsibilities under the Fair Housing Amendment Act.
Until December 2015, MVFHC offered a program to assist residents who may have been facing foreclosure on their primary residences. However, that program was closed as a result of a lack of funding. If you are currently facing foreclosure on your primary residence, contact the HomeOwnership Center of Greater Dayton.
If you believe you have encountered lending discrimination when attempting to secure a loan for your primary residence, MVFHC may be able to help you — to speak with someone about a lending discrimination issue, call 937-223-6035.
