About the Local Program Office
The Detroit Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) is responsible for the investigation of housing discrimination complaints under the federal Fair Housing Act, as assigned, as well as other civil rights complaints related to HUD funded programs in Michigan. Such other complaints may include Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development Act, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, among others.
In addition to helping people who feel they may have been illegally discriminated against, the FHEO staff monitor and provide technical assistance to operators of HUD funded programs to ensure that the various equal opportunity requirements are met. Staff members also work to educate the public and various housing and community development groups on the provisions of fair housing laws, civil rights program requirements and related HUD regulations.
