Fair Housing – It’s The Right!
Fair housing refers to free and equal access to residential housing – i.e. housing choice. The federal Fair Housing Act makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of a person’s race, familial status (presence of children under age 18), color, national origin, religion, disability (physical or mental), or sex. The New York State Human Rights Law protects all of the same characteristics as the federal Fair Housing Act but also makes it illegal to discriminate based on creed, age, sexual orientation, marital status, or military status.
Orange County complies with the federal Fair Housing Act and the New York State Human Rights Law.
The County is committed to promoting fair housing choice for all people. To learn more, pdf Click Here (148 KB)
