Fair Housing Month 2022 Ends but the Fight Continues
Housing discrimination persists in America despite federal laws requiring it to end; the Department of Housing and Urban Development encourages all who may have experienced some form of discrimination in the housing process to come forward.
Did you know you can report Fair Housing Act violations to HUD? This is done via the HUD Office of Housing and Equal Opportunity or FHEO.
FHEO is the agency responsible for enforcing not just the Fair Housing Act, but also:
- Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974
- Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
- Titles II and III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
- The Architectural Barriers Act of 1968
- The Age Discrimination Act of 1975
- Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972
Have you been discriminated against at any stage of the housing process, renting or buying? The Fair Housing Act protects house hunters and renters from discrimination based on:
- Race or national origin
- Family status
- Sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation)
Submit your Fair Housing complaint at (800) 669-9777 (voice) or (800) 877-8339 (Relay).
When submitting a complaint, be sure to include your name and contact information but also the contact information and physical address of those you are complaining about, the address of the property or housing program, a description of the incident, and the relevant dates, times, etc. The more complete your information is, the better, and don’t let too much time pass between the alleged violation and your communication to HUD.
