Fair Housing & Citizen Participation

Your Rights and Responsibilities

The Fair Housing Act of 1968, and subsequent amendments, prohibits discrimination in housing based on race or color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin. Everyone deserves a fair chance. If you suspect unfair housing practices, contact the Department of Housing and Urban Development Fair Housing Hotline at 1-800-669-9777 TDD 1-800-927-9275 or the New Jersey Division of Civil Rights 1-856-614-2550.
