Fair Housing Guidelines

The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on protected classes of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, familial status, and disability. Fundamentally, fair housing means that every person can live free. This means that our communities are open and welcoming, free from housing discrimination. This also means that each one of us, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, and disability, has access to neighborhoods of opportunity, where our children can attend quality schools, our environment allows us to be healthy, and economic opportunities and self-sufficiency can grow.

The Longview Housing Authority's commitment to fair housing is a living commitment, one that reflects the needs of America today and prepares us for a future of true integration. If you feel that you have been denied the right to rent or purchase a home based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, or disability click here to file a complaint.
