Congratulations to our Fair Housing Contest Winners!
The Southwest Wisconsin Housing Region announces the winners of our Fair Housing Contest.
The Fair Housing Act protects people from discrimination when they are renting or buying a home, getting a mortgage, seeking housing assistance, or engaging in other housing-related activities. Additional protections apply to federally assisted housing.
There are seven protected classes in the Act. Housing discrimination is prohibited based on race; national origin; sex; religion; color; disability; and familial status.
