Fair Housing Practices in Durham County

FairHousingAs part of its continuing effort to provide fair housing opportunities for its citizens, Durham County is releasing this public information notice concerning the Federal Fair Housing Law.

Under Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, in most instances, it is against the law to discriminate against a person in the buying, renting or financing of houses or apartments because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, family status or handicap.  This law entitles any person who feels he or she has been discriminated against to file a complaint. Residents inside the Durham City limits should contact Delilah Donaldson in the City’s Neighborhood Improvement Services Dept. at (919) 560-4107 x 34277 / Delilah.donaldson@durhamnc.gov
