Fair Housing is YOUR Right!
A Fair Housing Consortium has been established to provide services to Hocking, Athens and Perry Counties to prevent discrimination in housing.
Discrimination in the sale, rental, insuring or financing of housing is prohibited by the federal and state fair housing law. HAPCAP strongly believes in your right to fair housing.
The Fair Housing Act, established in 1968, means that you may freely reside in a place without regard to your:
- Race / Color
- National Origin
- Physical or Mental Disability
- Your Family Status (having children in your family)
Our goal is:
- To help you with any housing questions
- To educated you about your rights and responsibilities
- To help you, should you need to file a fair housing complaint
This is a free service and is offered to everyone.
If you think you have experienced housing discrimination or would like to learn more about your rights and responsibilities, please:
