Housing Fairness Board Gets Grant Totaling $25,000

A nonprofit agency that promotes fairness in the sale and rental of housing in the Long Beach area has been awarded a $25,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The $25,000 is the entire annual budget of the Long Beach Area Community Housing Resource Board, which provides educational materials and conferences for realtors in Long Beach and southeastern Los Angeles County.

The Resource Board is a sister agency of the Fair Housing Foundation of Long Beach, which since 1964 has investigated housing discrimination complaints in this area, said foundation Executive Director Robyn Poliner.
