Public Policy Program

The Public Policy Program of the Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana works to increase the awareness of policy-makers and regulators about the issues associated with fair housing. We work with local, state, and federal legislators to ensure strong fair housing laws and policies. We also collaborate with fellow organizations to strengthen fair housing laws. Funding restrictions impact significantly the ability of the FHCCI to be involved on issues of public policy.

The FHCCI has identified several Indiana “bad bills” that must be removed to better housing policies. At the bottom of this page are yearly FHCCI session summaries of legislation of interest for review.
