||Public Accommodation Disability Access Survey
As part of our jurisdiction with regard to disability as a protected class of the Kentucky Civil Rights Act, the commission is conducting an accessibility survey for people in Kentucky with disabilities.
The purpose of the survey is to train and educate Kentucky residents on how to identify barriers to accessibility in places of public accommodation in their own communities, assist places of public accommodation in recognizing and fulfilling their responsibilities to comply with the American Disabilities Act and the Kentucky Civil Rights Act, and create positive partnership opportunities for communities with their local human rights commissions.

||Housing Discrimination Survey
This year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) created 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 in conjunction with its HUD fair housing partnership is assisting with 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
