Housing Discrimination
Fair housing laws prohibit discrimination in the rental sale, finance, or insurance of housing based upon certain protected categories. Protected categories include race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability, marital status, family status, and HIV infection. Funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) (www.hud.gov), the Fair Housing Enforcement Program (FHEP) aims to enforce fair housing laws by determining whether housing providers (landlords, lenders, sellers, etc.) are discriminating against individuals.

This program offers statewide services to victims of housing discrimination, regardless of their income or assets. If you believe that you are a victim of illegal housing discrimination, please call 527-8024 on Oahu or 1-866-527 FAIR (1-866-527-3247) on the Neighbor Islands.
