Fair Housing Advocacy Committee (FHAC) is a multijurisdictional committee of Portland, Multnomah County and Gresham, and bound by an intergovernmental agreement to plan local federal resources to affirmatively further fair housing and access to opportunity. Members of this committee are appointed by the Portland Housing Commissioner, Multnomah County, Home Forward, the City of Gresham, and the Coalition of Communities of Color.

The committee is charged with reviewing data on disparities in housing choice, reviewing and endorsing best practices, coordinating public information campaigns, the regular review of enforcement data, suggesting policies for adoption by jurisdictions, and advocating for resources that will support effective approaches to furthering Fair Housing. FHAC also advocates in the areas of Fair Housing education and outreach, legal service referrals, and policy and planning regarding rental housing, ownership housing and related issues of access and opportunity.
