The section of the HUD website covering housing discrimination includes detailed resources on fair housing and discrimination. In addition to contacting HUD for information on discrimination laws, check out your state fair housing agency (linked to below). This may be your state attorney general’s office, a fair housing commission, or a civil or human rights agency. In some states, there is not one centralized fair housing agency, in which case you should contact HUD’s fair housing regional offices, which is linked to below for a handful of states.
