Fair Housing

Housing providers who refuse to rent, sell or provide equal access to homes to people based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status or disability are violating federal law. The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination and the intimidation of people in their homes, apartment buildings, and condominium developments in nearly all housing transactions.

The Housing Rehabilitation Program provides financial assistance through grants to improve housing conditions for qualifying low- and moderate-income households within the City of Colorado Springs.
