The mission of the Northwest Fair Housing Alliance is to eliminate housing discrimination and to ensure equal housing opportunity for the people of Washington State through education, counseling and advocacy.


For over 20 years the Northwest Fair Housing Alliance (NWFHA) has provided fair housing training for housing providers and consumers throughout Eastern and Central Washington. NWFHA can tailor a training program to meet your needs.


NWFHA assists people who have been discriminated against in housing because of race, color, national origin, disability, familial status, marital status, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or military / veteran status with the investigation and filing of fair housing complaints with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Washington State Human Rights Commission (WSHRC). If you believe that you have experienced such discrimination, we may be able to assist you in talking with your housing provider or filing a complaint. Please contact us at 1-800-200-FAIR (3247) or 509-325-2665.
