Fair Housing

The City’s fair housing program is designed to affirmatively further fair housing objectives of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, and other relevant federal, state, and local fair housing laws.


“Affirmatively further fair housing” means that the City actively works to reduce illegal housing discrimination. The City promotes equal housing opportunity through education and training, monitoring and investigating fair housing complaints utilizing techniques to support fair housing litigation, and conduct research and studies to identify and address fair housing impediments.


Fair Housing Act

Related federal, state and local fair housing laws prevent discrimination in housing related transactions or accommodations in Miami based on a person's race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, pregnancy, age, disability, marital status, familial status, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, victim of domestic violence, HIV status, or source of income.



Fair Housing.  It’s Not an Option. It’s the Law.
