2020 Fair Lending & Mortgage Clinics

The Connecticut Fair Housing Center will hold a series of Fair Lending & Mortgage clinics this year throughout the state. The clinics will address questions and concerns about applying for a home loan without discrimination, keeping a mortgage, and foreclosure prevention. The clinics are open to anyone applying for a home loan or any homeowner facing foreclosure. The clinics are FREE, and no pre-registration is required.

Clinic participants will receive information about fair lending laws, the home loan application process, the judicial foreclosure and mediation process, guidance on how to prepare and what documents to bring to court, and information about resources available to homeowners.

After the presentations, participants will also have the opportunity to meet with attorneys to discuss their individual situations.

We will announce 2020 dates soon! If you would like to receive a notice with dates and locations as soon as they are available, please let us know at info@ctfairhousing.org.

Defend Civil Rights in Housing!

Join us for Comments & Cocktails… and Call on HUD to Defend Civil Rights in Housing

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is proposing to gut the longstanding legal tool known as disparate impact under the Fair Housing Act, that would destroy a 45-year-old protection against housing discrimination and would pave the way for widespread harm to millions of people.

We are hosting a Comments Party on September 26, 2019 from 4:30-6:00PM at the Connecticut Fair Housing Center to raise awareness of the proposed changes and encourage people to submit a comment, urging HUD to reconsider the proposed changes. We will have refreshments, information about disparate impact, and sample comments so that we can help achieve the goal of submitting 100,000 comments to HUD.

Join us, invite your friends, and help to defend civil rights in Housing! Please RSVP at www.ctfairhousing.org/comments-party.

Can’t make it Hartford for Comments & Cocktails? You can submit comments here and learn more about HUD’s proposed attack on civil rights at defendcivilrights.org.
