The workshops are for tenants, users of housing services, non-profit organizations and housing providers. The workshops are free but registration is required.
The Fair Housing of the Dakotas (formerly the North Dakota Fair Housing Council) is a non-profit organization serving North and South Dakota. The Fair Housing of the Dakotas (FHD) was originally founded in 1995 as the North Dakota Fair Housing Council to serve the State of North Dakota. In 2003 FHD applied for and was awarded additional HUD funding to serve the eastern half of South Dakota. In 2004 FHD expanded their services in South Dakota to include the whole state.
FHD works to eliminate housing discrimination and to ensure equal housing opportunities for all. The FHD provides assistance to individuals pursuing legal rights and remedies related to fair housing, offers housing assistance and counseling, provides community education, promotes community involvement and performs research in the area of housing.
