    STAMFORD — From Building 1 CommunityThe Center for Immigrant Opportunity (B1C) in partnership with the Connecticut Fair Housing Center, held a Fair Housing and Fair Lending Workshop for immigrants on Saturday, January 5. Approximately 50 immigrants attended to learn about their housing and lending rights.

    The results of an Immigrant Community Needs Assessment conducted by B1C found that affordable housing is the number one self-assessed need identified by Stamford immigrants. In Fairfield County where housing prices are high, it is especially challenging for mixed status immigrant families and undocumented individuals to secure affordable housing. These findings prompted B1C and the Connecticut Fair Housing Center to organize an educational workshop for immigrants.
