||Public Accommodation Disability Access Survey
Disability is one of the protected classes of the United States and Kentucky Civil Rights acts. It is illegal to discriminate against a person because of a disability or perceived disability. The commission is conducting an accessibility survey for people in Kentucky with disabilities.
The purpose of the survey is to help Kentuckians identify barriers to equal access in their communities for people with disabilities. It is also designed to help public accommodations providers (such as restaurant and other business owners) fulfill their obligation to comply with civil rights laws by ensuring they provide disability equal access.

||Housing Discrimination Survey
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) implements a policy to ensure that its HUD-assisted and HUD-insured housing programs do not discriminate against people based on sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status.
The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights is conducting a survey for people who believe they have been discriminated against in housing based on sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status.
If you believe you have been the victim of such discrimination, please complete this short survey: Housing Discrimination Survey
