Fair Housing

The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination by direct providers of housing, such as landlords and real estate companies as well as other entities such as municipalities, banks and other lending institutions, and homeowners insurance companies whose discriminatory practices make housing unavailable to persons because of disability, familial status, national origin, race or color, religion, or sex.
