The Kentucky Fair Housing Council is a civil rights agency that investigates complaints of housing discrimination throughout the state. We are a nonprofit organization, and all of the legal representation and advocacy services we provide to clients are free. Federal housing law protects nine different identities against discrimination in housing transactions. This means no matter where you live in the United States, it is illegal to discriminate against a person because of one or more of these identities: race, skin color, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, familial status (someone who lives with children under the age of 18) and disability.
Since 1997, KFHC has been providing everything from direct legal representation to mediation and advocacy to assist clients in obtaining or maintaining housing. Over the time, we have built a reputation for being a leading voice in housing law in Kentucky.
