4 Dos & Don’ts for Dealing with Families with Children
HUD recently charged two separate sites with discriminating against families with children. In one case, a Rhode Island site owner steered fair housing testers claiming to have children away from the site [HUD v. Francis, FHEO No. 01-19-2644.8]. Another case involved owners in Wyoming imposing overly restrictive policies on families with children [HUD v. Gunnarson, FHEO No. 01-19-2644-8]. Targeted site rules such as a curfew and a requirement for children to be supervised in common areas were imposed against children.
