Live Free from Housing Discrimination

'Doormat' English
'Veteran' English

Fundamentally, fair housing means that our communities are open and welcoming, free from housing discrimination and hostility. But this also means that each one of us, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, and disability, has access to neighborhoods of opportunity, where our children can attend quality schools, our environment allows us to be healthy, and economic opportunities and self sufficiency can grow. Our commitment to fair housing reflects the needs of America today and prepares us for a future of true integration.
