Fair Housing for Housing Providers

Project Sentinel is not a tenant advocacy organization, but is, at its heart, a Fair Housing organization whose mission it is to preserve equal access to housing choice. As part of this mission, we regularly work with housing providers — owners, HOAs, managers, developers — to ensure that they are in compliance with the law. If you are a housing provider, we can:

  • Educate you on your obligations under the Fair Housing laws
  • Counsel you about how to handle requests for reasonable accommodations or modifications
  • Explain the “fair housing way” to deal with problem tenants
  • Suggest changes to policies and rules that may be unlawful

These services are free of charge and confidential. Also consider attending or hosting a Fair Housing Workshop for you and your staff.

Fair Housing Guide for Housing Providers

Project Sentinel, along with our partners at the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, with funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, have created a comprehensive guide to fair housing for California housing providers. We’ve also created a brochure highlighting how to best advertise your property without breaking the law. You can access a copy of these resources below. Please also feel free to explore the What Is Fair Housing? section on this site.

This site complies with the applicable regulations under Section 508 of the federal Rehabilitation Act.
