Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act by attending the Fair Housing Training on April 19, 2018, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at City Hall.

The City of Bowie in conjunction with Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development and Baltimore Neighborhoods, Inc.

The Fair Housing Act was written into law under Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, and signed by President Lyndon Johnson. The Act prohibits discrimination in housing because of religion, disability, gender, national origin, race or color, or familial status. During the month of April, the City's Office of Grant Development & Administration will host several educational activities related to the rights and obligations under the Act for tenants, landlords and others, including businesses, real estate companies, and homeowner associations.
