About the Clearinghouse


The Fair Housing Information Clearinghouse was established in 2015 to educate the public about their right to housing and lending free from discrimination and what to do if their rights are violated. Our mission is to ensure that the public has open access to consistent information regarding their rights to fair housing.

The Fair Housing Information Clearinghouse (FHIC) is a service of the Patricia Roberts Harris National Fair Housing Training Academy (NFHTA) [www.nfhta.org] and funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development [http://hud.gov]


The Clearinghouse provides the following informational products and services:

  • Publications and outreach materials related to Fair Housing and Equal Housing Opportunity, provided free of copyright, in a variety of formats and languages. Many were developed by state and local fair housing agencies with HUD funds, and some are customizable. Go to Media Library page.
  • Up-to-date News releases and articles related to Fair Housing and Equal Housing Opportunity. Go to News page.
  • Referrals to Fair Housing Agencies that will assist those who have questions or believe their fair housing rights have been violated. Go to Fair Housing Resources page to find your nearest Fair Housing Agency.
  • Free user accounts are available which enable users to customize and save resources for their agencies. Go to Registration page.
