April is proclaimed as Fair Housing Month.
The Norfolk Housing Agency provides current listings of available rentals, to include specific units that assist persons with disabilities. Voucher briefings by the Housing Agency inform the clients of their rights and how to file a discrimination complaint. The forms are provided to each client. In addition, the Norfolk Housing Agency staff members host and attend the Northeast Nebraska Fair Housing Conference annually. To be added to our mailing list for registration information for this event, please contact 402-844-2080 or email Julie at .
