April is Fair Housing  month and through project based requirements the Upper Coastal Plain Council of Government assists member governments with Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH)

On April 11, 1968, President Lyndon  Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1968.  Title VIII of the 1968 Act is also  known as the Fair Housing Act. The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination concerning the sale, rental, and financing of housing.  Initially, the Fair Housing Act prohibited discrimination because of race, color, religion and national origin.  Later, protections from discrimination because of sex, disability and familial status were added.
