Fair Housing Counseling and Investigation

ECHO is committed to ending discrimination in housing by providing counseling, investigation, mediation, enforcement, and education. The Counselors conduct site investigations and enforcement in response to reports of housing discrimination complaints based on ​race, color, ancestry, national origin, mental or physical disability, children, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, source of income, or any other arbitrary characteristic.

ECHO's Tenant/Landlord Counseling Program provides information to tenants and landlords on rental housing issues such as evictions, rent increases, repairs and habitability, harassment, illegal entry, and other rights and responsibilities regarding the tenant/landlord relationship.

ECHO has trained mediators to assist in resolving housing disputes through conciliation and mediation. We make referrals to legal services for advice and representation on housing-related issues including evictions, rent increases, repairs and habitability, and harassment. The primary objective of the program is to build awareness of housing laws and prevent homelessness.

ECHO's Homebuyer Education assists potential home buyers by providing classroom training regarding credit information, home ownership incentives, home buying opportunities, predatory lending; and provides presentations by realtors and lenders. Education is provided on a variety of subjects including home ownership responsibilities, government-assisted programs, as well as conventional financing.

This 8-hour long class provides education on how to apply for HUD-insured mortgages; purchase procedures, including housing inspections, closing costs, and alternatives for financing the purchase. Budgeting, mortgages, and down payments are discussed. Education also includes information on fair housing and fair lending and how to recognize discrimination and predatory lending procedures, and locating accessible housing, if needed. After completion of the course, each potential homeowner is awarded a Certificate of Completion.
