In response to growing concerns, NAA hosted a fair housing webinar featuring a panel of experts to discuss issues that affect the Deaf and hard of hearing and best practices. This webinar will discuss the HDS Study “Discrimination Against Persons with Disabilities Barriers at Every Step” and share resources to assist you in meeting the needs of persons who are Deaf or hard of hearing (download presentation slides).

A number of states and localities across the country have fair housing laws establishing the deaf and hard of hearing as a protected class. Use the button to the left to navigate to NAA's fair housing recourses and list of protected classes to see how this impacts you.
