The month of April is National Fair Housing Month. This month is a designated time to recognize the advancements of equal housing access and to remind ourselves of the purpose of the Fair Housing Act. Enacted by Congress in 1968, the Fair Housing Act applies to housing and housing-related activities including:

·         Apartment and home rentals

·         Mortgage lending

·         Home owners insurance

·         Real estate sales

The Fair Housing Act was enacted to protect persons form housing related discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, nationality, familial status (children), or disability. 

Examples of discrimination under the Fair Housing Act include:

·         Refusal to rent or sell housing

·         Refusal to negotiate for housing

·         Making housing unavailable

·         Setting different terms, conditions or privileges for sale or rental of a property

·         Providing different housing services or facilities

·         Falsely denying housing is available for inspection, sale or rental of a property

·         Persuading owners to sell or rent their home for profit

·         Denying access to or membership in a facility or service related to the sale of housing

·         Advertising or making any statement that indicates a limitation or preference based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, disability or blindness. This prohibition applies to single family and owner-occupied housing that is otherwise exempt from the Fair Housing Act.
