We work to eliminate housing discrimination and ensure equal housing opportunity through leadership, education, outreach, training, advocacy, and enforcement.

Dedicated to promoting and developing fairness and equal housing opportunity for all people.



Both State and Federal Laws prohibit discrimination in the rental or sale of residential housing for any of the following reasons:

  • National Origin  
  • Color
  • Religion      
  • Source of Income
  • Familial Status
  • Sex
  • Ancestry
  • Sexual Orientation

Fair housing governs nearly all aspects of residential real estate including rentals, sales, advertising, lending, financing, insurance, and zoning. The laws cover the activities of nearly every individual involved in the business of housing including: sellers, landlords, sales and rental agents, architects, developers, mortgage lenders, property managers, and homeowner associations. 



If you suspect discrimination, you do not have to accept it. However, do not act angry or threaten to sue. Instead, take action. Write down the following information:

  • Name of the manager or agent
  • Address and apartment number
  • Requirements for occupancy
  • Availability of the unit and you found the unit
