HOW TO FILE A COMPLAINT OF HOUSING DISCRIMINATION

 

 

If you believe you have been the victim of housing discrimination, file a complaint with the government. Do not just take it, or accept it, or figure nothing changes – fight it! For residents across Maryland, there are two options for filing a complaint of housing discrimination – filing with the State of Maryland’s Commission on Human Relations, or filing with the U. S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). Detailed information about the laws against housing discrimination and the steps of the complaint process are given at another part of this web site: Guides.
