The year 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act, as well as the 30th anniversary of the creation of the National Fair Housing Alliance.
As the nation’s leading fair housing advocacy organization, NFHA is uniquely positioned to plan and lead the 50th Anniversary activities. Far more than a celebration, the year-long commemoration will move us closer to being a nation where fair housing and opportunity are the norm in all communities.

To educate and highlight awareness to the specific needs for housing fairness and equality for everyone, several BRHA staff recently participated in Fair Housing Training (provided annually by the Virginia Fair Housing Office and the Little Ten Housing Authorities of Southwest Virginia) at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon, Virginia. The event brought together numerous agencies and Housing Authorities, including BRHA and surrounding localities.
