Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHE0)

The Minneapolis Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) is responsible for the investigation of housing discrimination complaints under the federal Fair Housing Act, as well as other civil rights complaints related to HUD funded programs in the State of Minnesota. The complaints may include Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and Section 109 of the Housing and Community Development Act.

In addition to helping people who feel they may have been illegally discriminated against, the FHEO staff provides technical assistance and guidance to property managers, owners, and developers; and monitors and provides technical assistance to operators of HUD-funded programs to ensure that the various equal opportunity requirements are met. The Minneapolis Fair Housing Division also works to educate citizens and various housing and community development groups on the provisions of fair housing laws.

Each jurisdiction receiving HUD funds is required to submit a certification that it will affirmatively further fair housing. This means that it will conduct an analysis of impediments to fair housing choice within the jurisdiction, take appropriate actions to overcome the effects of any impediments identified through that analysis, and maintain records reflecting the analysis and actions in this regard. Some examples of this analysis can be found at the sites listed here:
