The Long Island Board of Realtors (LIBOR) has launched a campaign to educate the real estate industry about fair housing issues, initially focusing on the rights of renters who use government assistance to pay for housing. LIBOR’s campaign aims to raise awareness of the protections in place for individuals using government income, including Section 8 vouchers, child support, alimony, and more. The campaign includes a website, homeforallofus.org, with resources for industry professionals. This initiative follows recent lawsuits and allegations of discrimination against renters using government-provided rental assistance, emphasizing the need for education and awareness in the real estate sector regarding source-of-income protections.
