Commemorating Fair Housing Month

Although progress has been made, challenges persist, and the fight against housing discrimination continues. The Fair Housing Act benefits individuals, families, communities, and society by providing access to housing in diverse neighborhoods with more economic opportunities, increasing financial security, and upward mobility. Inclusive communities attract more businesses and investments, resulting in job opportunities, improved infrastructure, and overall prosperity. Housing laws also play a critical role in creating neighborhoods where quality education is available to every child, breaking the cycle of inequality, and promoting social mobility.

These laws are essential in building a society that values diversity, equality, and inclusivity. Removing barriers to housing opportunities benefits us all. Visit to learn how we are making a difference and how you can get involved.

To learn more about fair housing and how to avoid discriminatory practices, see the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Housing Discrimination Under the Fair Housing Act.

Connecticut’s Discriminatory Housing Practices Act prohibits discrimination in housing because of Race or color, National origin, Ancestry Creed (Religion), Sex Marital Status, Age (non-minors), Familial status (families with children under the age of 18 living with parents or legal custodians and pregnant women) Disability (physical, mental or learning)  Lawful source of income (income derived from social security, SSI, housing assistance such as Section 8, child support, alimony, public or general assistance) Sexual orientation  Gender Identity or Expression Veteran Status.
