Legal Aid of Arkansas is celebrating the grand opening of its new fair housing office in Little Rock on Thursday, July 25.
The drop-in reception is from 4-7 p.m. The public and members of the community are invited to join to tour the building, learn about the project and meet the staff. Refreshments will be served. The office is located at 711 Towne Oaks Dr. in Little Rock.
The office has opened to house Legal Aid’s Fair Housing Project. The project seeks to eliminate housing discrimination through broad-based, comprehensive fair housing enforcement services through testing, education, and advocacy to ensure compliance with the Fair Housing Act.
The project comes through the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Fair Housing Initiatives Program, which provides funding for organizations across the country to assist individuals who have been victims of housing discrimination and educate the public, housing providers and other related organizations on the Fair Housing Act.
