Fair Housing & Anti-Discrimination Policies

The Durham Housing Authority is committed to Fair Housing. As defined by The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), equal access to rental housing and homeownership opportunities is the cornerstone of this nation’s federal housing policy. Housing providers who refuse to rent or sell homes to people based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability are violating federal law, and HUD will vigorously pursue enforcement actions against them.
