YouTube and Facebook video will alert consumers about important housing issues
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced today that it has produced videos for YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/FHAHUD) and Facebook
designed to educate Deaf and hard-of-hearing consumers about their fair housing rights, housing counseling services, and loan programs offered by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA)
In one video, a HUD employee uses sign language to tell his story of refinancing his home through FHA, the largest government insurer on mortgages. In another video, he explains that it’s illegal to discriminate in housing based on race, religion, sex, national origin, disability or family status. All videos encourage viewers to contact HUD by visiting its website,
for help or more information.
