What Is Fair Housing?

"Fair housing" refers to practices that comply with the Federal Fair Housing Act, originally passed in 1968, and similar state and local laws. The Fair Housing Act, as amended, prohibits discrimination in housing and related transactions on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, disability and familial status (presence or anticipated presence of children under the age of 18 years old in a home). Rhode Island state law protects even more people, including those who are discriminated against on account of marital status, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, and their status as a domestic abuse victim. Residents who have physical or mental disabilities that substantially limit one or more major life activities, have additional protections under the law.
