Fair Housing Counseling

Discrimination based on your race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, or disability is against the law.

If you think you may have been discriminated against in a housing situation, make an appointment to have your issue reviewed by one of our Housing Counselors.

The Fair Housing Act declares a national policy of fair housing throughout the United States. The law makes illegal any discrimination in the sale, lease or rental of housing, or making housing otherwise unavailable because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.

In addition to the Fair Housing Act, Pinellas County Code, Chapter 70, also prohibits discrimination based on Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression.

If your complaint involves a possible violation of the Fair Housing Act, our Housing Counselor will assist you in filing an official housing discrimination complaint.

You may also file a Housing Discrimination Complaint through the HUD website.
