This April marks the 54th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. Federal and state fair housing laws protect people from discrimination when trying to rent an apartment, buy a house, obtain a mortgage, or purchase homeowner's insurance. Fair housing is key for building strong and diverse communities. Each April, we celebrate Fair Housing Month to commemorate this important step toward equality in our country.

For more information about Fair Housing, please see the latest brochure or visit our webpage here.
