April is Fair Housing Month


What do you know about the Fair Housing Act?

Fair Housing laws, as outlined in the Fair Housing Act of 1968 and its subsequent amendments, are designed to protect people who fall into one or more of the seven protected classes:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • National Origin
  • Familial Status
  • Handicap

Along with federal Fair Housing laws, many states, counties and cities have passed protections for additional protected classes. Understanding Fair Housing law is an important step in finding a home.

Navy Housing Service Center (HSC) staffs are knowledgeable of the Fair Housing Act and are dedicated to ensuring Service members and their families are free to live wherever they want, without the burden of discrimination.  Our HSC staffs investigate housing discrimination complaints brought in by Service members.

No military family should have to face housing discrimination. If you believe you or your family may have experienced housing discrimination, please contact your local HSC to discuss:
