Fair Housing and Title VI
FAIR HOUSING -- Equal Opportunity for All
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) enforces the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination and the intimidation of people in their homes, apartment buildings, and condominium developments -- in nearly all housing transactions, including the rental and sale of housing and the provision of mortgage loans.
