Your Right to Fair Housing
Fair housing means that you have a right to live wherever you choose and to be treated according to the same rules as everyone else. The New York City Human Rights Law bans housing discrimination anywhere in New York City based on a disability. If you believe that you or someone you know has been discriminated against because of a disability, or through association with a disabled person, you may file a complaint with the following agencies:

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
26 Federal Plaza, Room 3532

Voice 1 (212) 264-1290
TTY (212) 264-0927
Fax (212) 264-9829

Complaints must be filed within one year after alleged discriminatory housing practice has occurred or ceased.

The New York City Commission on Human Rights

New York, NY 10006
Voice 1 (212) 306-7500
