Office Schedule

Please note that the FHCWM will be closed on Monday, January 21, 2019 in observance of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Find events celebrating Dr. King in the Grand Rapids area and across the State. On April 11, 1968—seven days after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—President Lyndon Johnson signed into law Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, commonly known as the Fair Housing Act. The legislation

 was co-sponsored by then-Senators Edward Brooke and Walter Mondale and advanced an ambitious and progressive vision: to eliminate housing discrimination and residential segregation in this country. As envisioned, the Fair Housing Act is an important tool for achieving both justice and equity. In signing the bill, President Johnson proclaimed: “At long last, fair housing for all is now a part of the American way of life. We have come some of the way—not near all of it." Learn more about the legacy of Dr. King's work in fair housing here.
