Fair Housing

The Fair Housing Board works to ensure equal housing opportunities for all West Allis residents. The Board also promotes Fair Housing throughout the community with awareness programs like the Fair Housing Poster Contest and proactive educational materials. The Board processes all claims of discrimination in housing and is responsible for receiving, investigating, and eliminating or remedying discrimination by mediation, persuasion, education or litigation.

Housing provides staff support for the Fair Housing Board.

Fair Housing Poster Contest

In 2023, the winner of the City's Fair Housing Poster Contest got something extra: their very own utility box! As part of the City's Utility Box Art program, the winning Fair Housing Poster Contest design was wrapped around a utility box at the corner of 60th Street and Grant Street to promote the program's message while beautifying the community.
