Fair Housing

Fair Housing Makes Us Stronger

Canopy Realtor® Association and Canopy Housing Foundation recognized during Fair Housing Month

Fair Housing Proclamation

On April 2, 2019, the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County issued a proclamation to recognize the 11th-annual Realtors® Care Day project and Canopy Housing Foundation’s work to create partnerships to help better meet housing needs in the community.

April has been proclaimed “Partnerships: Improving Our Communities Month” as a result of the many community and local partners joining the Realtor® community to raise awareness of fair housing and that everyone deserves a safe place to live.   

The 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act was April 11, 2018

Fair housing is more than a list of dos and don’ts, rights and penalties, and mandatory continuing education. As stewards of the right to own, use and transfer private property, fair housing protects our livelihood and business as REALTORS® and depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity. Fair Housing Makes US Stronger.
