Did you know that April marks the anniversary of the enactment of the Federal Fair Housing Act of 1968, which sought to eliminate discrimination in housing opportunities and to affirmatively further housing choices for all Americans?

During the Osceola County Commissioner’s meeting on Monday, April 1, 2019, Vice Chairwoman, Viviana Janer presented a proclamation declaring April 2019 to be known as Fair Housing Month.

Osceola County is committed to highlighting the Fair Housing Act of 1968, by addressing discrimination in the community, supporting programs that educate citizens about the right to equal housing opportunities, and by planning partnership efforts with other organizations to help bring awareness to every American of their right to fair housing.

Fair Housing Month encourages citizens and community organizations to support and celebrate the value of diverse communities and the goal of equal housing opportunity for all.
