The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) enforces fair housing laws and investigates complaints of housing discrimination. It is illegal to discriminate in the sale or rental of housing, including against individuals seeking a mortgage or housing assistance, or in other housing-related activities. If you believe you may be a victim of housing discrimination because of your race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, or family status, contact HUD to file a complaint or learn about your fair housing rights, click the "Find out more" link to the right.
Persons who identify as LGBTQ and believe they have experienced housing discrimination because of their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity can assert their rights under the Fair Housing Act by filing a complaint with HUD. HUD will accept and investigate all legally sufficient complaints of sex discrimination, including discrimination because of actual or perceived gender identity or sexual orientation, and enforce the Fair Housing Act where it finds such discrimination occurred or is about to occur. In addition, some LGBTQ persons may have claims arising under other provisions of the Act, e.g., race, national origin, color, religion, disability and familial status. HUD’s Equal Access Rule also requires that eligibility determinations for housing assisted by HUD or subject to a mortgage insured by HUD be made regardless of actual or perceived gender identity, sexual orientation, or marital status.
The #FairHousingAct prohibits discrimination in housing, including rentals, sales, mortgage lending, and insurance, because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability or familial status.
