April is Fair Housing Month - Working to Stop Discrimination

This month marks the 47th anniversary of the passage of the 1968 Fair Housing Act, and HUD is launching an educational campaign to help people recognize and combat housing discrimination.

This quote from HUD Secretary Julián Castro sums it all up. "At the core of everything we do to improve housing opportunities is a firm belief that no family should ever be denied the opportunity to own or rent a home because of what they look like, where they come from, how they get around, how they speak, who they love and other circumstances of life. HUD’s fair housing efforts level the playing field so that folks have a solid foundation upon which they can achieve their dreams and build for the future."
