FORT COLLINS, Colo., Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- With a potential fee of $16,000 for a first-time complaint, fair housing violations are costly - even for those who were acting with the best intentions. And the number of filing complaints is on the rise. According to the latest data from the National Fair Housing Alliance, 1,071 harassment reports were filed in 2020 - marking the highest number of harassment complaints reported since data collection began.
