Additional Information

The housing discrimination hotline helps to file complaints of housing discrimination due to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability.

The multifamily housing complaint line supports enforcement efforts by empowering tenants and community residents to act as the agency's eyes and ears to ensure safe, decent and sanitary housing.

Your housing discrimination complaint will be reviewed by a fair housing specialist to determine if it alleges acts that might violate the Fair Housing Act. The specialist will contact you for any additional information needed to complete this review. If your complaint involves a possible violation of the Fair Housing Act, the specialist will assist you in filing an official housing discrimination complaint.
