This year, HUD commemorates the 56th Anniversary of the Passing of the Fair Housing Act, signed into law on April 11, 1968, by President Lyndon B. Johnson during the Civil Rights Era.

According to, this law was designed to protect Americans from facing discrimination in selling or buying houses. Amendments over the years now allow it to also cover discrimination when renting apartments for all protected classes.

The Fair Housing Act, 42 U.S.C. 3601 et seq., prohibits discrimination by direct providers of housing, such as landlords and real estate companies, as well as other entities, such as municipalities, banks, or other lending institutions, and homeowners insurance companies, whose discriminatory practices make housing unavailable to persons because of: race or color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status, or disability.
