Common types of discrimination in Idaho

Common fair housing complaints reported in Idaho involve accessibility, reasonable accommodation, familial status, and national origin. It may be that these areas are the least commonly understood fair housing requirements. Design and construction requirements vary depending on the space involved and the source of development funding, and are best interpreted and implemented by experienced professionals. Reasonable accommodation or modification requests can be confusing, even for experienced housing providers. Familial status violations can easily occur when the original intent is to ensure children’s safety or the rights of other tenants. National origin can involve language barriers that pose challenges for small organizations with limited resources.
