FAIR HOUSING
 



The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) designates April as National Fair Housing month.  April 2014 marked the 46th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination in housing because of race or color, national origins, religion, sex, familial status or disability.

 
Fair Housing Month is used to create and foster awareness of the rights of every individual under the Fair Housing Act and to promote the principles of equal opportunity in housing.
