About

Fair housing testing provides an objective means to determine whether prospective renters or buyers are treated differently in violation of the Fair Housing Act. Testers are matched based on income, credit history, and other factors relevant to the home buying or leasing process. The seven protected classes identified under the Fair Housing Act are race, color, national origin, sex (including sexual harassment), religion, disability, and familial status.

Volunteers are needed who can objectively gather and report information about the availability of housing while posing as a prospective renter or homebuyer. Testers receive free training and a stipend for completed tests along with reimbursement for actual costs such as mileage.

This is a great opportunity for persons 18 and older.

If you are interested in becoming a tester or if you have friends or family members who you think would like to become fair housing testers, please contact me. Giovanni Zamora at 512-474-7007 ext. 104 or Giovanni@housing-rights.org
