Fair Housing And Equal Opportunity

The mission of the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) is to eliminate housing discrimination, promote economic opportunity, and achieve diverse, inclusive communities by leading the nation in the enforcement, administration, development, and public understanding of federal fair housing policies and laws.

FHEO protects people from discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and familial status.  In addition, housing providers that receive HUD funding, have loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), as well as lenders insured by FHA, may be subject to HUD program regulations intended to ensure equal access of LGBT persons.

The AFFH rule fulfills a long-stan ding obligation under the Fair Housing Act for HUD-funded recipients to take affirmative steps to dismantle historic patterns of segregation and eliminate disparities in access to opportunity regardless of protected class. AFFH is built on the fundamental ideal that the doors of opportunity should be open to everyone.
