The Texas Fair Housing Act, and the U.S. Fair Housing Act, protect individuals from discriminatory housing practices in the sale, rental and financing of dwellings based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, physical or mental disability, or familial status.

To review the provisions that architectural designers should be aware of, we will play a game that asks questions about the Texas Fair Housing Act and learn from each other’s answers.  Join us for some fun and be one of the winners of a gift card!  You will also earn 1.0 HSW/Barrier Free continuing education credit.
