It is illegal to discriminate, or make a distinction, on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, family status, and more. Many protections are provided to prevent discrimination and provide equal housing opportunities.
It is the responsibility of every housing provider to provide housing equally, without making distinctions on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, family status, and more. Knowing your responsibilities as a housing provider can promote equal housing opportunities for all.
Persons with disabilities have additional rights under fair housing laws to ensure open housing opportunities and the ability to equally enjoy a home.
Housing investigators, or testers, are community members who undergo training and meet with housing providers to determine their housing practices.
