HUD PSA FY 09
April 13, 2009
APRIL IS FAIR HOUSING MONTH
A top priority of HUD's Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity is creating equal housing opportunities for every resident of this nation. One of the primary ways HUD accomplishes this is by aggressively enforcing the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability.
The Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity administers fair housing laws and establishes national policies that ensure all Americans have equal opportunities in housing for which they qualify.
Individuals who believe they have experienced discrimination can report it to HUD by calling the Department's
toll-free fair housing hotline numbers: 1-800-877-7353 or TTY 1-800-927-9275. Individuals can file a housing discrimination complaint by logging onto HUD's Fair Housing website: www.hud.gov/fairhousing or espanol.hud.gov
or call FHEO staff at (303) 672-543.
