Fair Housing Act Enforcement Activity

HUD investigates complaints of housing discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, or familial status. At no cost to you, HUD will investigate the complaint and try to conciliate the matter with both parties.

If conciliation fails, HUD will determine whether "reasonable cause" exists to believe that a discriminatory housing practice has taken place. If HUD finds "no reasonable cause," we will dismiss the complaint.

If HUD finds reasonable cause, HUD will issue a charge of discrimination and schedule a hearing before a HUD administrative law judge (ALJ). Either party may elect to proceed in federal court. In that case, the Department of Justice will pursue the case on behalf of the complainant. The decisions of the ALJ and the federal district court are subject to review by the U.S. Court of Appeals.
