Fair Housing Hearing Board

Improving Public Awareness of Fair Housing Laws

The Fair Housing Hearing Board works to improve public awareness of the City's Fair Housing Ordinance, which prohibits discrimination in housing opportunities on the basis of race, color, religion, family status, disability, national origin or sex.

Are you experiencing housing discrimination?
The Office of Equity and Inclusion is here to assist. Please call 919-996-5740 or email humanrelations@raleighnc.gov for help.
