Fair Housing Act Discrimination

General Government and Economic Policy

Resolves that the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) supports legislation and regulation that allows all individuals the opportunity to pursue their American Dream and seek the housing of their choice while allowing its’ members to develop and build safe and affordable housing in all areas where it is needed.

Further resolves that NAHB urges Congress to pass legislation that reduces barriers to, and supports the development of, much needed affordable housing and to provide clear exemptions from liability under the Fair Housing Act, where such liability may arise from good faith unintentional acts in pursuit of compliance with the requirements of local, state and federal housing programs.

Further resolves that NAHB work with the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of the Treasury to help them clarify rules for preventing any form of discrimination in accordance with the Fair Housing Act.
