It is the policy of the Public Housing Agency (PHA) to fully comply with all Federal, State and local nondiscrimination laws; the Americans with Disabilities Act; and the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations governing Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. PHA shall affirmatively further fair housing in the administration of its public housing program.
No person shall, on the grounds of race, color, sex, religion, national or ethnic origin, familial status, or disability be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under the PHA’s programs.
To further its commitment to full compliance with applicable Civil Rights laws, the PHA will provide Federal/State/local information to applicants/tenants of the Public Housing Program regarding discrimination and any recourse available to them if they believe they may be victims of discrimination. Such information will be made available with the application, and all applicable Fair Housing Information and Discrimination Complaint Forms will be made available at the PHA office. In addition, all written information and advertisements will contain the appropriate Equal Opportunity language and logo.
PHA will assist any family that believes they have experienced illegal discrimination by providing them copies of the appropriate housing discrimination forms. PHA will also assist them in completing the forms if requested, and will provide them with the address of the nearest HUD office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.
