Attend a Community Forum on Fair Housing. The Snohomish County Human Services Department is in the process of completing a comprehensive study of fair housing choice in Snohomish County, outside the City of Everett, and is hosting three community forums on October 28 in Arlington and Lynnwood, and on October 29 in Monroe. The forums are an opportunity to learn about the preliminary results of a local fair housing study, learn about fair housing laws and your rights and responsibilities, and participate in a discussion about fair housing choice in Snohomish County. For more information, view the flyer below.
Fair housing laws prohibit discriminatory actions against applicants/residents of housing based upon a protected class* (i.e., race, color, national origin or ancestry, family with children, religion, sex (gender), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran or military).

A report was conducted for Snohomish County that identifies barriers to fair housing in our community. The report, Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, or AI, includes a recommended five-year Fair Housing Action Plan to help address these barriers and improve access to housing.
