Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988
The Federal Fair Housing Act (1968 and 1988) makes it illegal to discriminate in the sale or rental of housing when the discrimination is based on any of the following factors:


            National Origin
            Familial Status
The Laws protect against discriminatory actions (based on one of those factors above) such as:
  • refusing to sell or rent
  • sexual harassment
  • quoting a difference in housing availability
  • quoting a difference in security deposit required
  • quoting a different monthly rent
  • refusing to rent to a family or individual with children
Come and see how you can protect your organization from Fair Housing violations!
